Drive to give school supplies to homeless kids
A foundation connected with Prudential Locations real estate offices is collecting school supplies to distribute to children in homeless shelters on Oahu and Maui.
Supplies can be dropped off at any Prudential Locations office from Monday through Wednesday or any Prudential Locations open house Sunday and July 20.
The Locations Foundation hopes to donate more than 600 backpacks filled with school supplies during its annual Backpack to School event.
The supplies needed include Elmer's Glue Sticks and 4-ounce bottles of the glue; writing supplies such as No. 2 pencils, black pens, red pencils and fine-point black markers; white erasers; rulers; and 24-packs of Crayola Crayons.
Shelters that will receive backpacks include Loilani Hale, Weinberg Village, Institute for Human Services, Next Step, Women in Need, Waianae Civic Center Shelter, Ohana Ola transitional housing, Windward Spouse Abuse Shelter, One Malu, Vancouver House, Family Promise and, on Maui, the Waikoloa Homeless Shelter.
