Greetings! I hope your week is going well thus far. I just thought I’d pop in and share that my annual Art Supply Drive is winding down. This is the last week of my official drive. Next I’ll do some shopping, and will then move on to creating a kit of supplies for each child. So far I have enough supplies to teach two classrooms of children – my goal is six classrooms.
There’s Still Time!
Did you plan on donating – just haven’t gotten everything together yet? Fear not! Whether you plan on sending in assorted supplies, a check, or gift cards, I’ll happily accept your donations after August has come to an end. However, I’d really appreciate it if you could email me and tell me what you plan to send – and your donation’s ETA. :]
These are the items I currently need the most:
- Money or gift cards for the journals I’m going to buy at Office Depot
- Michaels gift cards (for paper punches and mini ink pads)
- Crayola crayons – 8-count packs
You’re welcome to send just about anything, though. Whether you pull items from your personal stash of art and craft supplies or purchase something especially for the kids, it will all be put to good use. :]
Big thanks to those of you who have already donated supplies for my at-risk students – SO kind of you! I’ll be sure to post photos that I take when I go in to teach. I wish you could be there with me to see how excited the kids get, and to hear their many thank yous. I’ll do my best to capture some of the fun and excitement by posting here on my blog after I’ve visited the classrooms…
