2014-2015 SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
OPERATION BACKPACK – 2014-2015 SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
Keizer Community Library is once again partnering with the Assistance League Auxiliary, as a donation site for their school supply drive!The ALA provides school supplies to area students throughout the academic year as requested by teachers. The benefits are local and serve children in more than 58 schools in the Salem-Keizer area. The mission of this important program is “to provide school supplies to those students who come to school without the basic tools that are essential for academic success.”
Our collection drive this year will be from August 1st through August 31st.Beginning on August 26th, supplies will be made available to school counselors for the upcoming school year.
Please join in helping all children succeed by buying and donating supplies to help the students in our community. You CAN help!
Aileen Cochran, a long time volunteer with the Keizer Community Library, serves as chair of this industrious chapter. Please stop by and see her every other Wednesday during the day if you have questions on the program. The donation box is located in the northwest corner of the children’s section in the Library.
This program is sponsored by the Assistance League of Salem Keizer Auxiliary.
