Many New Jersey children face the prospect of arriving at their first day of school this September without the most basic of school supplies. In order to address this, the AMI Foundation is launching its 7th Annual “Tools for Schools” supply drive, July 27th through August 14th.
The list of requested school supplies includes pencils, erasers, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, crayons, colored markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, highlighters and soft pencil cases. Many of these supplies can be purchased at deep discounts at the area’s large retailers, such as WalMart and Target.
As in years past, the AMI Foundation has also purchased book bags to accompany the school supply donations. Once the drive is complete, the collected supplies and book bags will be delivered to elementary schools throughout the area in late August. To date, the AMI Foundation has donated over 1,700 book bags to area school children in need.
