Got Extra School Supplies?

My sorority didn't crown me Pi Phi's "Most Philanthropic" for nothin'!

Since there will be plenty of back to school sales beginning soon at all the local office supply shops, I figured it'd be a great chance for anyone who is interested to pick up a few extras (potentially for free at the penny and buy one/get one sales!) to donate.

From my good friend, and fellow wine and silver blue-er, Adrianne... the passing along of a special request:

FW: School Supplies Donation Request

As some of you may know, my husband is over-seas for a year working for the Department of Defense. At the camp where he works, there are classes being held to teach English for indigenous soldiers who work closely with American troops. They are in need of school supplies for adults. If you are interested in donating, I have included a list below of several items that have been requested. You can drop them off at my desk anytime, and I'll ship them over. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for your help!

Supplies Needed:

Books to practice the alphabet or basic words/phrases
Flash cards

Remember, this is a class for adults but still at a pretty basic level. Thanks again!"
For anyone who is not at McKinney (where the email originated) to drop things off at the desk mentioned, please feel free to leave me a comment and I will be more than glad to help collect or to put you in touch with the folks at McKinney pitching in for the common good, too!

PS - For those of you who might have younger children, summer jobs as nannies, etc., this is a great way to reduce some of the clutter that you might not have any use for anymore!
