SPRINGVILLE — The America’s Promise team at Cattaraugus County Bank is holding a “Back To School Supply Drive,” this August. The drive is intended to provide area school children with supplies they may need, but cannot afford.
Those items include pens, pencils, loose-leaf paper, pocket folders, glue sticks, colored pencils, crayons, spiral notebooks, highlighters, liquid glue, construction paper, scissors, erasers, poster board, scotch tape, stickers, wide ruled paper and composition notebooks. Book bags, tissues and lunch boxes will also be accepted.
A red wagon, the national symbol for America’s Promise, will be displayed in each location, through the end of August, as a drop-off location. CCB will distribute the supplies to local schools after they are in session in September.
“This is what we do, as part of the America’s Promise commitment; we help children,” said America’s Promise Team Chair Mary Jo Woodarek.
“There are so many children that need these items, to enhance their learning experience. CCB is pleased to offer area schools help, in this way. Please look for the wagon and donate supplies. Without the proper school supplies, some children may not have the same opportunity others enjoy.”
