Summer is winding down and a new school year is right around the corner! This means families in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia will be looking for the best deals on school supplies.
Unfortunately, poverty prevents some children from starting off the school year prepared and this can have a devastating impact on a child’s education. A backpack full of supplies, allows children to start the school year feeling ready and confident.
Charm City Concierge has partnered with local organizations to collect school supplies local children will need to succeed this school year. Collection dates are listed below. Please contact your concierge for drop off locations.
DC & Virginia Collection: Monday, July 25th-Monday, August 15th
Baltimore Collection: Monday, July 25th-Monday, August 5th
Our DC/VA team is partnering with Volunteers of America to support Operation Backpack and our Baltimore team has partnered with BOMA to benefit Squashwise, St. Elizabeth School, Hamilton Elementary School, Sarah’s House, Salvation Army and Hope Forward.
Items to donate include backpacks, binders, paper, pencils cases, pencils, erasers, scissors, crayons, lunch boxes, rulers, pens, glue sticks, markers, notebook dividers, tissues, and other school essentials.
It takes a village to raise a child, and with your donation, we can make sure all kids are ready when the bell rings!
