Sunnyside Community Services (SCS) is collecting school supplies for children in the programs at the Cornerstone Community Center at Woodside Houses and at the Boulevard Family Residence.
“The cost of basic school supplies can be more than some families can afford every year,” said Sheena Sukhraj, Assistant Executive Director of Youth and Family Services at Sunnyside Community Services. “We can help our children have a better school experience by making sure they have the tools they need to succeed.”
Community members, staff, local businesses, and others dropped off supplies throughout the Summer, including notebooks, backpacks, paper, markers, pens, pencils, rulers, crayons, folders, flash drives, and calculators. We are grateful to everyone who helped to support this significant effort.
