Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced that the Town of Oyster Bay will participate in Long Island Cares’ School Supply Drive. The drive, which takes place during the months of July and August, collects new and gently used school supplies for disadvantaged students.
“Children are our most precious resource and together we can help make the beginning of the school year a positive experience for Long Island’s students,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The Town is proud to partner with LI Cares to collect generous donations for this worthwhile cause.”
The most needed school supplies are: new backpacks, new lunch boxes, binders, notebooks, folders, pens, pencils, erasers, pencil cases, construction paper, foreign language dictionaries, dictionaries, loose leaf paper, printer paper, rulers, crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, tape, calculators and books.
