The first day of school can be challenging for any child-it can be especially challenging for those students who arrive empty-handed. Operation School Supplies is here to fill that need. Operation School Supplies is a partnership between Globe University, Charter Communications, and the Hallmark Channel to collect basic classroom materials, giving each child the tools they need to learn.
Globe University in Eau Claire will be collecting donations for Operation School Supplies July 30 through August 19. All collected materials will be donated to help the youth of Eau Claire Area schools. In addition to supporting this great cause, donors will receive a coupon for a free Charter Video OnDemand rental.
Operation School Supplies was able to contribute to a number of schools and organizations throughout Wisconsin last year and hope to do the same with the 2012-2013 school term. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the development and education of the children in your community. Visit the Eau Claire Globe University location to drop off your donations(s) to support this cause.
Examples of items needed: New backpacks, One-inch binders, Notebook paper, Spiral notebooks, Calculators, Pens/Pencils, Erasers, glue, Rulers, Crayons, Color Pencils/Markers, Assorted color folders, Pencil pouches or boxes.
