As another school year approachs, many students can’t afford even the most basic school supplies. That’s where Grand Central Park comes in. We’re hosting a school supply drive Mon. Aug. 2 to Sun. Aug. 8.

Anything you can provide will be appreciated and it’s as easy as putting a few extra items in your cart when you’re getting your own children ready to go back to school.

Bring your donations to The Finding Place, 170 Town Park Drive, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 2-7 or or 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.  People that bring donations anytime from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, August 7 will receive a free snow cone.

Needed items include:

  • Notebook Paper
  • Spiral Notebooks
  • Pocket Folders
  • #2 Pencils
  • Glue
  • Construction paper
  • Post-It Notes
  • Pencil Bag
  • Index Cards
  • Composition Book
