Cleveland Back To School Supplies Drive!

pencilsThe Cleveland Neighborhood Association will be hosting a Back to School Summer Nights Event at Cleveland Park Thursday, August 21st from 5:30pm-7:30pm. There will be food, games, prizes, and a live DJ! Our goal for the event is to provide 100 students with backpacks and school supplies for the 2013-2014 school year.

CNA is partnering with Juxtaposition Arts to provide art inspired backpacks yet we are still in need of school supplies to fill the backpacks. We are asking that community members donate school supplies (notebooks, folders, pencils, crayons, glue sticks, scissors, etc.) to help make our event a success. Office Max, Office Depot, Staples and others all have great deals, here’s a great list of sales. Please take a few minutes during your shopping this weekend and pick up some school supplies for area youth. Cleveland staff will be out during National Night Out and can collect supplies then or you can contact the office to drop off or have your supplies picked up. Thanks!

Please call the Cleveland Neighborhood Association office (612-588-1155) to coordinate the drop off of donations. We’re also looking for volunteers for our Back To School event, so please contact us if you’re interested in volunteering as well.

Thank you!
