Each year, the Denver Bar Association Community Action Network hosts a school supply drive to benefit the Educational Outreach Program through Denver Public Schools. The school supply drive helps underprivileged kids receive tools to ensure that they are ready for and excited about school.
Today, July 26, 2013, is the last day of the DBA-CAN school supply drive. Donations of school supplies can be dropped off at the CBA and CLE offices during business hours. All standard school supply items are needed, including backpacks, crayons, markers, pencils, erasers, pens, rulers, glue, pocket folders, paper, notebooks, binders, geometry sets, and boxes of tissue. Click here for a complete list of needed supplies.
There are other volunteer opportunities related to the school supply drive. On August 1, volunteers are needed to sort through the donated supplies. On August 3, volunteers are needed to stuff backpacks for donation. Additionally, on Saturday, August 10, at Whittier Elementary School in Denver (25th & Downing), the DBA-CAN and community volunteers will hand out the donated school supplies. This will be a fun carnival-themed day and many volunteers are needed for the carnival booths.
