It’s Time to Head Back to School!

Thousands of children in the First State have either already started back to school or head back to the classroom sometime in the next few weeks. For many families in Delaware, heading back to school is a costly burden on already strained budgets. To assist our neighbors struggling to make ends meet, we’re conducting our first-ever Back-to-School Supply Drive! So far we’ve received a wide assortment of school supplies from area businesses, but, unfortunately, there are still many families in need.

If you’re able to help out, some of our most-needed items include:

  • Notebooks
  • Pencils/pens
  • Loose-leaf paper
  • Crayons/markers/colored pencils
  • Glue
  • Pocket folders
  • Backpacks
  • Safety scissors
  • Composition books 

For more information about hosting a school supply drive, please contact Jim Weir, Operations Director, at (302) 444-8073 or jweir@fbd.org. We can also arrange to pick up larger donations! Those wishing to drop off donations may stop by the Newark (14 Garfield Way) or Milford (1040 Mattlind Way) warehouses Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
