School Supply Drive

Posted on

Our Faith In Action Committees are sponsoring a School Supply Drive for the Refugee Support Center (RSC), a local non-profit that was established in 2012 to serve and promote the self-sufficiency of refugees living and working in Orange County, NC. RSC provides refugees with access to services and providers along with assistance with housing, immigration, legal matters, and liaising with local schools. New, unused school supplies are needed for school-aged children of refugee families:

  • Backpacks for all grade levels: Preschoolers (10 boys/10 girls); Elementary (20 boys/20 girls); Middle (20 boys/20 girls) and High (15 boys/15 girls)
  • 2” and 3” Binders
  • Loose Leaf Paper (wide and college ruled)
  • Subject Dividers for Binders
  • Pencil pouches for binders
  • 1, 3, and 5 subject spiral notebooks
  • Lined paper for PreK-grade 2
  • Crayons
  • Glue Sticks
  • Kiddie Scissors
  • Washable Markers
  • No. 2 Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Colored Pencils
