Many of the families we serve at OneWorld do not have enough money to purchase basic school supplies like backpacks, notebooks and pencils for their children. In lieu of a Back-to-School Bash this year, OneWorld will host a school supplies drive as a way to help our young patients access the materials they need to achieve academic success.
Volunteers from SEi Security will be onsite at our clinical locations on the last weekday of National Health Center Week 2019 (Friday, August 9) to help us stuff and distribute backpacks, then our staff will continue to pass the backpacks out to patients as needed throughout the back-to-school season.
We will collect donations until Wednesday, August 7, 2019. Anyone who is interested in donating one or more of the following new items for our young patients can contact firstname.lastname@example.org:
- #2 pencils with erasers
- Book covers
- Colored pencils
- Folders with pockets
- Glue sticks
- Handheld pencil sharpeners
- Notebook paper
- Pencil boxes or pouches
- Red pens
- Spiral notebooks
We are unable to accept used backpacks or school supplies.
If you would like to financially support the school supplies drive and have Development staff members do the shopping, you can make a donation at www.OneWorldOmaha.org/donate and select “school supplies drive” as the designation.
