School Supply Drives In Windward For Keiki

A month before school starts, Locations Foundation is having its annual “Backpack to School” supply drive to help equip needy keiki with the simple tools of learning.

From July 7 to 11, the foundation will accept donations of items at six Prudential Locations Oahu offices, including Windward — at 151 Hekili St. #120, and at its Windward Mall kiosk. Needed are Elmer’s glue sticks and 4-ounce bottles, black pens, red pencils, fine-point black Sharpie markers, composition books, wide-rule folder paper, 1-inch binders, white erasers, rulers and 24-pack Crayola Crayons. Readers also may drop off items at any Prudential open house July 6 and 13.

The foundation’s goal is to pack and deliver at least 500 backpacks to Weinberg Village, Family Promise, Boys & Girls Club, Women in Need, Vancouver House, Loliana Hale and HIS. For more information, call 262-2727.
