Now through Sept. 6, shoppers can drop off their donations of backpacks and school supplies for students in need at the mall management office. Shoppers will also be able to check the progress of how much has been collected and encourage the community to “Let’s Pull Together!”
Being prepared for learning with the essential supplies is the first step for students to reach their academic goals.
Suggested supplies for the drive include backpacks; 1” binder, folders, notebooks and study index cards; pens, pencils, erasers and pencil cases; highlighters, washable markers and crayons, safety scissors, glue sticks, tissues and hand sanitizer.
More information can be found at https://www.centerffs.org/ and https://www.moorestown-mall.com/.
To assist shoppers in their search for school supplies and backpacks to support the “Let’s Pull Together” drive, items can be found at the following retailers: Boscov’s, Michaels, Hot Topic, Five Below and more.
Moorestown Mall will also ring in the new school year by hosting the “Back to School Get Together” on Aug. 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Families are encouraged to bring a donation to the school supply drive. Kids will have the opportunity to decorate notebooks (while supplies last), and can enjoy prize wheel giveaways, a temporary tattoo station, DJ music and more.
