The delirium caused by the prolonged excessively hot days of July in Virginia makes it easy to forget… back to school is just around the corner. With back to school comes back to school shopping. Kids can not be effective in the classroom without the basic supplies of pencils, erasers, paper, etc. Unfortunately, there are many families who can not afford all of these supplies. Enter Northside Coalition for Children. NCC’s mission is to provide free school supplies to any child who attends Richmond Public Schools. To fulfill their mission, they host an annual back to school rally where RPS teachers and students can pick up supplies. This year’s rally is August 5th from 9AM-1PM at Hotchkiss Field Community Center.
NCC is still in need of donations, especially of backpacks, notebook paper, and crayons. To make your donation, contact Shonda Harris-Muhammed on facebook , by email at firstname.lastname@example.org , or by phone at 804-687-6743. Donations must be received by Friday August 4th!
