Newman Aguiar/rotary club 30:44 "Certainly, they need it now
more than they have needed it in the past as supplies budgets have been slashed
and so schools have had to make due with fewer supplies," said Rotary Club member Newman Aguiar. "So, it's become really
important for the community to step up an support our teachers in this way."
If you did not get a chance to donate to this drive, dontations can always be made to the "Crayons2Calculators" organization.
In addition, over 150 local businesses will have collection bins for the public to drop off supplies.
The drive hopes to bring in over $50,000 worth of school supplies this year. The rotarians think about $12,000 of that may come
from the drive Saturday.
