The City of Gaithersburg Educational Enrichment Committee, in conjunction with the Division of Community Services, announces the kick-off a school supply collection drive.

Items specifically identified by local educators include: 2, 3 and 4” binders Pencils (regular and colored) Pencil pouches Highlighters and markers Erasers Stickers Glue sticks Scissors Crayons Achievement stickers White lined paper White/color card stock Tissue paper Rubber bands Cardboard sheets Index cards Tape (regular, colored and masking) Tape dispensers Poster board Construction paper Craft sticks Bubble wrap Boxes of tissues Hand soap 5 & 7 oz. plastic cups Plastic spoons Straws Ziploc bags Toothpicks Cookie sheets Wax paper Aluminum foil and plastic wrap 20 skeins different colored yarn Donations can be dropped off at the Community Services Office in the Wells/Robertson House facility at 1 Wells Avenue (next to City Hall) weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., February 20 through March 15.
