Pay it Forward - Back to School With Dignity
Every year Rockland County Board of Realtors in conjunction with People to People’s Back to School with Dignity program helps to provide much needed essential school supplies to kids from low-income families.
Donations of notebooks, binders, folders, pens, pencils, colored pencils, index cards, calculators, backpacks, memo pads, graph paper, paper dictionaries, dividers, 5 subject notebooks, etc. are dropped off at realtor offices in the county and then collected by the Realtor Board for donation to People to People where volunteers are on hand from late August through early September to fill backpacks with all the school supplies for distribution to needy school children.
Thanks to the help and generosity of the county realtors, the students of Rockland's struggling families are given the opportunity to begin their school year with dignity and confidence. They will be collecting supplies for the next two weeks, between August 1 through August 15, 2011.
When you're out shopping for school supplies, remember to Pay it Forward and pick up some extra items to fill those donation bins for the less fortunate children in the county and help them start their school year with dignity!
