Family & Children’s Association, Long Island’s human service agency, is accepting donations of new back-to-school supplies and clothing.
This back-to-school drive is part of an annual effort by Family & Children’s to help financially struggling Nassau County families make ends meet and prepare area children for a successful school year.
This year, the agency is asking everyone to consider donating sneakers, sweatshirts and jeans along with the pencils, backpacks and notebooks they’ve given in the past. Or, if you don’t have time to shop but want to help, visit www.familyandchildrens.org/donate.
Donations can be brought to:
Suite 25, 2nd floor, Mineola, NY
Family & Children’s
100 E. Old Country Rd.
According to Joyce Mullen, Family & Children’s communications director, “Families are really struggling right now and we’d like to help them get their children and teenagers ready for school with adequate supplies and new school clothes. We’re asking our friends and neighbors to pick up extra notebooks, sneakers, markers or calculators while they’re out shopping for their own children and grandchildren. This is a concrete way to make a difference in our area.”
