YOU CAN HELP: Pencil Me In For Kids school-supply drive donation time

The new school year is two months away but it’s time for donations to the long-running Pencil Me In For Kids school-supply drive. Several businesses are dropoff spots, according to this update from Judy Pickens:

Canine Casa Pet Salon owner Cherie Rahm and client Moose received materials this week from volunteer Doug Gunwaldsen as the Fauntleroy community kicks off its support of West Seattle Rotary‘s annual Pencil Me In For Kids school-supply drive. Salon customers are invited to drop off supplies through July 31 to equip students in need when they return to area schools.

Other donation bins are at Fauntleroy Church, West Seattle & Fauntleroy YMCA, Treo Organic Salon, and Wildwood Market in Fauntleroy, plus Keller Williams Seattle (5446 California Ave. SW). Cash donations are also welcome here so that drive coordinators may buy supplies in bulk.

    I have some art supplies – colored pencils and the like. Would that be helpful?

    YES!  We can find homes for all your art supplies, as long as they still have life in them.  Take them to any location that has a donation bin, and they will soon go to a young artist.

      Judy – my second graders came home with their supply boxes for the year. Colored pencils, crayons, markers…all stuff we already have at home. Is this something you could reuse? (All in good shape with lots of life left.)Thanks!

    YES, please pass duplicates on to the drive.  Everything will go to someone who needs it.

    Yes!  Donate your duplicates and we’ll find a home for everything.

Sorry, comment time is over.
