Gaithersburg Collecting Supplies for End of School Year
The City of Gaithersburg Educational Enrichment Committee, in conjunction with the Division of Community Services, announces the kick-off a school supply collection drive. Several years ago the Committee conducted a survey of educators and found that supplies for teachers and students are in high demand during the latter part of the school year. As part of the GREAT program (Gaithersburg Recognizing Educational Achievement Today), the committee is collecting school supplies for distribution to Gaithersburg area schools in the spring.
Items specifically identified by local educators this year include:
- 2, 3 and 4 inch Binders
- Glue Sticks
- Dividers for Binders
- Colored Pencils and Markers
- Achievement Stickers
- White Lined Paper
- Certificates of Completion
Donations may be brought to the Community Services office in the Wells/Robertson House facility at 1 Wells Avenue (next to City Hall) between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays through April 15. Please contact Community Services Division Chief Maureen Herndon at email@example.com, 301-258-6395 x1 or visit the City’s website at www.gaithersburgmd.gov/communityservices for more information.
