**2020 School Supply Drive**
We think it’s safe to say that 2020 has been a year filled with uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sadly, we know some families have experienced hardships, such as job furloughs and loss of income(s), which have made it hard to make ends meet.
With this in mind, we hope to fill a cruiser at our annual School Supply Drive on Monday, August 31st, which will benefit the students of our local school districts (LBI and Southern). This year, all donated supplies will be delivered directly to the schools for distribution. We will be collecting donations in the Surf City Vol. Fire Company’s parking lot from 9am-12pm.
Additionally, we will have a donation box set up at Borough Hall where items can be dropped off during normal business hours. The donation box will be available beginning Monday, August 24th, and the last day items will be accepted is Friday, September 4th.
With safety in mind, we will only be accepting new/unused items. Items needed include, but are not limited to: boxes of crayons; machine-washable markers; pens; highlighters; No. 2 pencils; erasers; pencil cases; glue sticks and/or school glue; blunt tip scissors; plastic pocket folders; binders; loose-leaf paper; wide-ruled notebooks; college-ruled notebooks; backpacks; lunchboxes.
We’d like to thank everyone in advance for their support of this drive, as we know how compassionate and generous you all have been and continue to be when it comes to supporting our community and our efforts. We hope to see you there! #surfcitynj #surfcitynj☀️🌊 #lbi #lbinj #lbiregion #lbilife #longbeachisland #longbeachislandnj #southernoceancounty #njlawenforcement @surfcityfire49
