School Supply Mitzvah Project Wraps Monday Night

The Boulder Jewish community is sponsoring a “Crayons to Calculators” school supply drive and we need your help!

Tonight:  Thank You & Backpack Stuffing Ice Cream Social!

The Boulder JCC is hosting the Thank you and Backpack Stuffing Ice Cream Social tonight, August 2nd, 2010 form 6:30 to 8:00 pm.  We’ll need your help stuffing backpacks with the donated school supplies and then we’ll enjoy ice cream and ice pops. The Boulder JCC is located at 3800 Kalmia Ave., Boulder.

The Need

With the high costs of school supplies, purchasing supplies presents challenges to many economically disadvantaged families in the Boulder Valley and St. Vrain school districts. The goal of this project is to increase community support of children in need and ensure that all students start school with the supplies they need to succeed. For the 2010-11 school year, the program will fulfill the needs of nearly 7,000 students!!

How Can You Help?

Through the generosity of the 18 Pomegranates Foundation, Oreg Foundation and several individual donors, we were able to purchase over 300 backpacks!

We are asking for your help in filling these backpacks with supplies. When shopping with your child for school supplies, please purchase supplies to fill a backpack, OR you can purchase a non-gender specific backpack to donate along with the school supplies. Click here for the list of supplies.

After purchasing your items, please drop them off at our ice cream social tonight.
