Each year, the Glen Cove Youth Bureau, in collaboration with the Friends of Glen Cove Youth Board, collects school supplies for needy students in the Glen Cove School District. Basic school supplies and backpacks will be collected through Aug. 19 at the Youth Bureau (128B Glen St.), Glen Cove Library (near the magazine reading area), City Hall (clerk’s office, third floor), Starbucks (Glen Cove Avenue and School Street) and Trinity Lutheran Church (74 Forest Ave.).
All donations are welcomed and appreciated. Monetary donations are also accepted. Make checks payable to “Friends of the Glen Cove Youth Board” and mail to Cindy Rogers, Glen Cove Youth Bureau, 128B Glen St., Glen Cove, NY 11542. For more information, call 516-671-4600.
The Youth Bureau is fortunate to receive many donations for this effort. Some of its perennial donors are students Cassandra and Matthew Nochowitz of Glen Head. With support from their aunt and uncle, Cassandra and Matthew went shopping and filled four backpacks with all of the supplies that students their age need to start the school year off on the right foot.
