School Supply Drive
Girl Scouts of Nassau County is pleased to partner with the John Theissen Children’s Foundation’s School Supply Drive Program.
Troops are asked to donate some new school supplies for children in need. Many of these children live in shelters or homes where parents have very limited income. Some are too embarrassed to go to school on the first day because they don’t even have pencils or notebooks.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Buy a minimum of $5 in school supplies. If this is a troop donation, the minimum donation should be $40. Supplies must be brought in between August 5th and August 29th to guarantee that they reach
the children before school starts.
- Drop supplies off at either GSNC Council Shop located at 110 Ring Road West, Garden City or at the John Theissen Foundation Office located at 1881 Wantagh Ave, Wantagh. Have the form signed from someone at drop location.
- Bring the signed form to the GSNC council shop to purchase your GSNC/John Theissen School Supply Drive patch for $1 each.
- Supplies needed include pencils, notebooks, memo pads, ballpoint pens, round-edged scissors, glue, rulers, crayons, filler paper, and pencil sharpeners.
