District students head back to school on Monday, August 24, and you can help make sure students at one area school have the supplies they need this year.

Through Wednesday, August 26, the residents, staff, and families of Seabury at Friendship Terrace, located at 4201 Butterworth Place, are collecting school supplies for Imagine Hope Community Charter School Tolson Campus in Northeast D.C. The Tolson Campus has a student body of 451, over 80% of whom are classified as economically disadvantaged.

Needed supplies include, but are not limited to: pencils, pens, crayons, markers, highlighters, composition books, notebooks, folders, loose leaf paper, glue sticks, and rulers. For a complete list of the supplies students at the Tolson Campus need for the coming year, visit the school’s website.

So while you are out doing last minute school shopping or running errands this week, consider picking up a few extra items to donate as part of Seabury at Friendship Terrace’s school supplies donation drive.
