For several years Canyon View has provided backpacks with grade-level supplies to elementary schools in the Linda Vista area. Since this school year begins in a “virtual” classroom for most students, our request for donations is just now being announced. We’re happy to be working with Kit Carson and Linda Vista Elementary schools again as partners in our outreach. In addition, we would like to help the Jackie Robinson YMCA childcare/after school programs with any learning supplies they may need this year. The Kindergarten through Third-Grade students may be returning to classrooms before the older students.
In anticipation of schools reopening, you can supply filled backpacks to the office any time before September 30th. Call in or email before dropping them off. You can also bring them Sunday morning. Here is the list of requested school supplies Besides those, here is a list of special items requested by the schools:
· Small Kleenex packets
· Individual hand sanitizers
· Small liquid hand soaps
· Antiseptic wipes
· Child-size masks
· Individual refillable water bottles
· Thumb drives for storing schoolwork
If you’d like to contribute by check, cash, online we will gladly shop for you. Please be sure to designate your contribution by writing
“Back to School.” Many school supplies are currently on sale and backpacks will probably be reduced in price since sales have been slow under the current circumstances.
Our collective goal, along with the generosity of Canyon Villas, is to provide 40 supplied backpacks plus supplies for the YMCA. Thank you in advance for your continuing generosity.
If you have suggestions or questions, please contact Carol Simonson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
