Description:

Plymouth Community United Way is gearing up for our annual school supply drive. We need YOUR help! In 2016, we were able to fill 120 backpacks with 7,172 various school   supplies. The bags were distributed to Plymouth, Canton, and western Wayne students in need of the proper tools to help increase their ability to achieve their educational potential. Without the basic tools of pens, pencils, crayons, rulers, and paper, our students will not have success in the classroom environment. 

The drive will run from July 15th through August 12th, in an effort to get the backpacks filled and distributed by the start of the school year. Plymouth's 1-800- Self-Storage has signed on to be a secondary drop point for NEW school supplies. Simply stop by their 42360 Ann Arbor Road, Plymouth, MI location during business hours to drop off your donation. We will also be collecting NEW items at the PCUW office Monday through Thursday, 745AM to 430PM, and Friday's 745AM to 245PM.

Should your company or group like to participate by hosting a drive on-site, or like to sponsor an item like 3-ring binders or backpacks, please contact Randi at 734-453-6879 x5.
