Parents Matter Now Collecting School Uniforms, Supplies to Distribute Aug. 26


COLLECTION: Parents Matter, a unique online family support group, is asking people to donate all their unneeded and clean school-related items, such as clothing, belts, backpacks, bags, ties, copy books, pencils, pens, etc. to share with needy families in the community. Undergarments, such as vests, socks, etc., will be accepted only if brand new.

For more information, Call Harriet this week at 643-4342. Needed items are for all schools — public, parochial or private.

DISTRIBUTION: The 4th annual School Uniform Drive and Family Social will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 26, at the Church of the Apostles’ Doctrine, in Smith Bay on the main road, just atop the speed bumps. Look for the balloons.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
