2017 School Supplies Drive

Global Citizen, in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Media Network (Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News & Philly.com), 900AM-WURD, the African American Museum in Philadelphia, High Point Café, iHeart Media, Coca-Cola and Home Depot, are partnering on a school supplies drive to benefit students in underserved Philadelphia public schools.

Suggested items for donations include: No.2 pencils, ballpoint pens, copy paper, construction paper, colored paper, calculators, protractors, dry erasers, scotch tape, masking tape, crayons, magic markers, highlighters, rulers, children's scissors, binders, bottles of glue, glue sticks, tissues, and hand sanitizer.

The donations will be retrieved at the conclusion of the drive by a Philadelphia Inquirer/Daily News delivery truck and returned to their Schuylkill Printing Plant in Conshohocken, where volunteers will sort and repackage all the collected items. The supplies will then be distributed to Philadelphia public schools that are in particularly underserved areas and have expressed a need for additional resources.

A ceremony will be held on Friday, September 8, at a school to be determined, where project partners will present the donated supplies to the students, principal, and representatives from the School District of Philadelphia.
