The Glen Cove Youth Bureau has began collecting school supplies and monetary donations to provide hundreds of eligible students, grades K-12, with a book bag filled with school essentials. Among the items that are being collected include, binders, crayons, school bags, pens, pencils, notebooks, hand sanitizer, tissues and other items that are on Glen Cove School District’s supplies list.
Collection boxes are at the Glen Cove Youth Bureau, City Hall, Glen Cove Hospital, library and Rising Tide Natural Market, which will donate $300 to the Youth Bureau’s Fill-a-Book Bag drive as part of their Charity of the Month for August.
Parents with students who may be in need of supplies are asked to contact the Youth Bureau for a request form. Each resident must be registered in a Glen Cove Public School. Request forms must be submitted by Monday, Aug. 27, in order for students to participate in this program.
Checks may be made payable to the Friends of the Youth Board c/o the Glen Cove Youth Bureau, 128B Glen St., Glen Cove, NY 11542.
