So much is unknown this year, but one thing is for sure:
students still need school supplies.
While most of our region’s students will be learning remotely, a computer with wifi isn’t the only supply they’ll need. Remote students will still take notes with pencils and paper. They’ll need pocket folders and backpacks to stay organized. And they’ll take art class with crayons and glue. The need has actually increased because classrooms can no longer share materials, and now even more families are experiencing financial hardships.
