The Village of Wellington’s community services department is once again holding its back-to-school drive to aid area students as they prepare for another school year.
To contribute to the school supplies drive, residents are asked to drop off school supplies between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at either Village Hall, Community Services, the Lake Wellington Professional Centre or Village Park. The goal is to send students back to school ready to learn.
Requested school items include No. 2 pencils, colored pencils, black or blue pens, erasers, colored markers, paper, glue, rulers, folders, backpacks, crayons, notebooks, staplers and calculators.
The drive runs through July 28.
Supplies collected through the drive will be distributed to students who attend Wellington schools at the annual Back-to-School Community Block Party scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tiger Shark Cove Park.
For more information on the school drive, call Community Services at 791-4764 or go online to wellingtonfl.gov.
