On August 17th and August 24th at Hanby Elementary School, you can make a difference in a studentâ€™s life and ability to succeed.
The Brandywine Education Foundation is conducting a â€œBack to Schoolâ€ campaign to collect school supplies to provide to students whose parents are not able to provide the basic supplies needed for their children to be ready to learn on day one.
The Foundation is also collecting monetary donations towards its goal of providing a gift card to K-5 teachers to offset some of their out of pocket expenses. The Foundation notes that teachers spend an average of $350 of their own money each year to buy items they use in the classroom. The Foundation is also accepting donations of your gently used school uniforms which will be given to students in need.
Donations of school supplies or uniforms will be accepted at Hanby Elementary School from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday the 17th and Saturday the 24th. Monetary donations will also be accepted during those times or you can make a check payable to the Brandywine Education Foundation and mail it to 136A State Line Rd., Wilmington, DE 19803.
Should you have specific questions, you can contact the Brandywine Education Foundation.
