The People First Food Pantry of Uxbridge has begun its annual Backpack/school supply drive. This drive will be held from July 1 - August 27. The food pantry is currently serving 100+ children per month and needs your help! We are in need of the following school supplies:
- black, red and blue pens,
- erasable pens,
- colored pencils,
- 1, 3 and 5 subject notebooks, & filler paper,
- 3 ring binders,
- divider folders,
- rulers, scissors (left and right hand scissors for small children),
- pencil sharpeners,
- pencil bags,
- colored paper,
- T1-84 calculators and
- index cards.
Donations may be dropped off at the Uxbridge Public Library, Uxbridge Senior Center or at the donation bin at Hannaford Supermarket. This drive plays a pivotal role in providing children in need the necessary school tools they’ll need in order to be successful. Please help us to make a difference in the lives of our children!
Thank you for your support!! For more information please contact the food pantry at 278-5506.
