For more than 15 years, while kids have enjoyed the height of summer abandon, neighbors and friends of the LCEC have organized a school supplies drive. Adult and youth volunteers sign up students, collect donations, pack bags of school supply staples, and make sure those bags get to more than 200 young people from nearby neighborhoods.
How can you help?
Drop off NEW school supplies at our front desk between 9am and 5pm through August 4:
- Crayons (24 count), colored pencils, markers (wide, thin, or dry erase), highlighters
- Ball point pens (blue or black), pencils (standard, Ticonderoga or Mirado), pencil sharpeners, erasers
- Glue sticks, scissors, post-it notes, scotch tape
- Notebooks (wide or college ruled, single subject or 3-subject), loose-leaf paper (wide or college ruled)
- Pocket folders, index cards (3×5), calculators, rulers, supply boxes
- Backpacks for high school students
Or mail your check to the Lussier Community Education Center at 55 S Gammon Rd, Madison WI 53717.
What if your child needs supplies?
Parents can register young people for this needs-based program at the July 28 Community Dinner or by visiting the LCEC’s front desk. Be sure to bring a photo ID or other proof of address with zip code 53711, 53717, 53719 or 53705.
