On Behalf of the Friends of the D.R. Evarts Library
Many families in our area are struggling due to Covid-19 related job loss and the current economic recession.
So, the Friends of the D.R. Evarts Library is seeking donations of new school supplies to help our local kids prepare for the coming school year. Let’s fill those backpacks!
If classes begin in person, children will not be allowed to share supplies or use lockers at school. Any supplies that they borrow from the classroom or teachers will need to be sanitized between use, presenting another set of challenges.
Please help our kids and teachers navigate this unprecedented time.
We’ll be collecting supplies from August 14th through August 26th and donating them directly to our local schools.
Drop boxes are located at:
- Crossroads Brewing Co. (21 Second St., Athens, NY)
- Stella’s II (6 S. Water St., Athens, NY)
- The River Grill at Stewart House (2 N Water St., Athens, NY)
- 80 Lisa Lane, Sleepy Hollow, Athens, NY
