Dear Friends & Somerville Residents,
Once again, the Somerville Kiwanis Club is implementing a school supply drive program to help less fortunate children and families to be ready for the new school year starting September, 2019.
In conjunction with the Parent Information Center and Somerville local schools, the Somerville Kiwanis Club has a goal of distributing 200 backpacks filled with necessary school supplies to children and families in need by early August. This year, we are focusing our efforts on serving students in grades 7-12. It has come to our attention that it is the older kids who truly need our help.
Supply wish list:
*17”- 19” BACKPACKS
Pencil cases (soft)
Pencils, Pens, Highlighters, Colored Pencils
Spiral Notebook or pad
Pads of paper
3 ring binders
Section Tabs for 3 ring binders
