>Back To School Supply Drive- Thank You

>

It has been a week since our Back To School Supply Drive for Fairfield City Schools and it took almost all of this whole week to recover. But with the help of the community we were able to collect enough supplies to help several hundred students start the year off right with the supplies they need for school. I have included some pictures below of what we did that day and I wanted to say a special Thank You to all of those who where involved with the planning, collecting and sorting of the school supplies.

Saturday started off a little stressful, I walked to my car to start loading some of the supplies that we needed and it was RAINING!!! I felt sick to my stomach, I wanted to cry! But I pulled it together and headed to the school. We started setting up boxes that were donated to us by Two Men and A Truck before we headed to the parade. I was quickly impressed with the the 4 guys that were with Two Men and A Truck. They immediately jumped in and started helping us opening boxes and sorting the supplies that were donated from Ohio Casualty and Butler County Coalition Group. We also had a drop off location for the week of the drive at ReRuns For Wee Ones. It is so great working with business’ that are so helpful and friendly!!

We collected several supplies from very generous parade watchers as we walked through our Annual Back To School Parade. We then headed back to the school and continued to collect the rest of the day.

We passed out our “Thank You” bags that were filled with great coupons from places ReRuns for Wee Ones, Springstreet Vitamins and special prizes from our sponsors. We had prizes such as $5 Gift Cards to Subway, $25 Gift Cards for Lakeview Landscaping, $25 Kroger Gift Card from MommySnack, $5 Gift Cards from Family Video, and much more. Kroger donated water for our volunteers and McDonald’s donated Hi-C drink for our volunteers as well. Fairfield Pizza also donated pizza for our volunteers.

We also had some great help from our friend Katie from Cincinnati Cents who stopped by with her boys. They stayed and sorted supplies with us for several hours!! 

We then got to work, sorting all the supplies that were donated. It was a lot of work but well worth it. Box after box of supplies. I was just amazed at the generosity of the community!!

So after many weeks of planning from myself, Tosha, Becky and our Community Director for Fairfield Schools, Randy Oppenheimer, it was a success!! Next year we hope to collect even more and help more students. We already have a list of ideas for next time. So thank you to all of the people of the community that donated and thank you again to all of the local business’ that stepped up and helped us with our drive, we can’t thank them enough. Take a minute to check out their sites or stop by and visit their business. Here are our sponsors….

This year it will be on Saturday August 21, 2010 starting at 11:30am. The parade travels from Hicks Blvd to Nilles Road and then ends at the Intermediate Building off Route 4, where we will continue to collect supplies until 5pm. We have made a list below of the supplies that are needed for the students throughout the entire district. Any donation big or small is welcome. Every donation makes a difference. We are asking residents, community groups and local businesses to participate in our Back to School Supply Drive by donating any supplies listed below.
