Back to School Supply Drive

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

The new school year is just around the corner, which means it's back to school time. This year, we've partnered with the Children's Aid Society to host a back to school supply drive at the August 15th concert with Kajun Kelley down at O'Donnell Lake (10900 O'Donnell Place, St. Charles, MD).

The Children's Aid Society is a non-profit working to improve the quality of life for struggling Charles County families with children. One of the organization's projects include providing brand new book bags stuffed with all the necessary essentials to start students' school year ready to learn. In 2012, approximately 1,300 local students were assited. If you'd like to participate in the drive, the following are suggested supplies. Download a flyer to share or take with you to the store.
