2014 Annual School Supply Drive to Benefit Denver Public Schools
1. When is the drive?
The drive will run from July 21-Aug. 1. Donations will be picked-up the week of Aug. 4.
2. What should I collect donations in?
Please collect donations in boxes that are easy to carry and that you can give away. Also you may promote the drive by printing off the flyer attached to this email.
Due to budget constraints this year we are unable to print posters and mail them to you. We hope that you understand.
3. When will the donations be picked-up?
Our RICOH volunteer drivers will pick-up your donations during the week of Aug. 4. They will pick-up the box(es) from the address specified by you in the on-line form. We cannot determine the exact date and time of delivery – so please note any issues or special instructions you have in the on-line form.
4. Can I donate money?
Yes, cash donations are greatly appreciated. They are used to purchase supplies that we end up short of. The sooner we receive the monetary donations the better so that our staff can purchase the necessary supplies (usually back-packs), in time for the bag stuffing on August 10.
5. Where to send Cash/Check donations. Are Tax Receipts provided?
Please make checks payable to “Denver Bar Association.” And send them to Kate Schuster at the Denver Bar Association, 1900 Grant Street, Suite 900, Denver, CO 80203 at the end of the drive.
6. What items are you in need of?
We are always in short supply of back-packs, however please refrain from purchasing Red back packs due to gang related issues.
