Dear Friends & Somerville,

Over the next few months, my friends from the Somerville Kiwanis Club are implementing a school supply drive program to help less fortunate children and families to be ready for the new school year starting September, 2018 and they need your help.

Alongside the Parent Information Center and Somerville local schools, their goal is to distribute 200 backpacks filled with necessary school supplies to children in need, grades 7-12, by early August.

PLEASE consider donating supplies or making a monetary donation to help these kids in our community!

Supply wish list:

Somerville Kiwanis is active in the community donating hundreds of volunteer hours annually in various programs; this school supply drive is a new initiative for the club. With your help, we hope to make this a successful annual effort that will ensure all of our kids will start the school year with the confidence and pride of being ready to study.
