School Supplies Drive

If you are looking to drop off your filled school supply bags while the Center is closed August 8th-15th, please feel free to bring them to the Community Studio (located in the Katonah Shopping Center next to Tengda). The Studio is open Tuesday-Friday from 10AM to 4PM and Saturday 10AM to 1PM. The Studio will ONLY be accepting donations of school supplies, and CAN NOT take any clothing or food donations. 

By providing brand new school supplies to all children whose families turn to us for support, we can significantly reduce the financial burden and help prepare each child for academic success.

Due to the ongoing economic hardship felt by so many families in our community, our school supplies program is more essential than ever.

With limited space at the Community Center and still so many children in need of our support, we are asking for your help to donate PRE-FILLED bags of BRAND-NEW school supplies again this year.

If you would pledge to fill a number of bags (even 1 bag will be a help!) you will be playing a big role in helping us to ensure that all children have the tools they need to succeed when they return to school this Fall. We anticipate that 1,800 children will be relying on our support.

School supply bags with age appropriate lists inside are available at the Community Center for pick up during regular hours as of June 1st and we ask that they be filled and dropped off by July 20th. Preschool bags cost approx. $10 to fill, elementary, middle and high school cost approx. $25 to fill. 

Please help children in our community get back to school with the tools they need to succeed. We can't do it without the support of all of you!

Would you rather just donate to help ERASE THE NEED? A donation of $25.00 will provide a child with the basic supplies they need to start their school year.
