The donations will be retrieved from each drop-off location on Wednesday, September 4 by a Philadelphia Inquirer truck and delivered to the Philip Kearny School.
A sorting project will be held on Friday, September 6, where project partners will present the donated supplies to the students, principal, and representatives from the School District of Philadelphia.
