You can donate from now until September 5. City Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer launched his 8th Annual Back to School Supplies Drive to benefit students in need of supplies for the start of the school year. As of August 8 and through September 5, community members will have the opportunity to donate school supplies like backpacks, notebooks, pencils, crayons, calculators, and rulers at Majority Leader Van Bramer’s District Office and at five Queens Library drop off locations. The supplies will be distributed to students in need throughout District 26 in Western Queens for the start of the school year on September 7.

“No child should have to go to school without the supplies they need to do their best,” said Van Bramer. “With the upcoming school year fast approaching, many families in our community struggle with the cost of supplies that are required and have to make tough choices that could leave a child without necessarily supplies like notebooks, a backpack, or a calculator. Each and every child deserves to walk into school with the dignity and confidence that comes from a full backpack. So for the 8th year, my office is partnering with the Queens Library to hold a month-long supplies drive to ensure all students have the supplies they need from day one. I encourage anyone who can donate supplies to stop by my district office in Sunnyside or one of the five Queens Library locations until September 5. Your help will make a real difference and give each child in our community the tools to learn, grow and succeed.”
