Community Partners of Dallas will host its 25th annual Back to School Drive, benefiting abused and neglected children in Dallas County. Now through August 31, CPD along with individuals, organizations and businesses throughout Dallas will collect new school supplies and will prepare nearly 3,500 children to start school with age appropriate school supplies and uniforms.
In addition to supplies, such as scissors, colored pencils, glue sticks, markers, and construction paper, CPD especially needs backpacks, pencil sharpeners, block erasers, manila paper and pencil pouches.
Those interested in supporting the Back to School Drive can do so through in-kind or monetary donations through August 31. All donations can be delivered to Community Partners of Dallas’ Central location, 1215 Skiles Street in the Wilson Historic District or visit www.communitypartnersdallas.org for additional supply drop off locations.
For a full list of school supplies needed, visit www.communitypartnersdallas.org or contact Corinne Karp at 214-624-7588.
