School Supplying

We're happy to pass on from the nonprofit group twentyfivefortyfive (twentyfivefortyfive is an initiative of The Columbia Foundation, which serves as a catalyst for building a more caring, creative and effective community in Howard County by encouraging philanthropy among those between the ages of 25 - 45.):

twentyfivefortyfive is hosting a "drive-by" giving event on Sunday, August 22 with Prepare for Success, a local organization that provides backpacks and school supplies to thousands of Howard County school children in need each year. Your donation of school supplies will go directly to local students and help them get off on the right foot this school year.

It's easy: while you're out shopping for school supplies for your children or even during your weekly grocery run, please consider picking up a few extra items from the list below. And, it's a great opportunity to get your kids involved in giving as well by helping to pick out school supplies for others while shopping for their own!

Then all you have to do is swing by the Columbia Foundation headquarters (10227 Wincopin Circle in Columbia) on Sunday, August 22 between Noon and 3 p.m. to drop them off -- we'll take care of the rest.

Thanks for your interest in twentyfivefortyfive and we hope to see you on the 22nd!
