Many children in our district won’t have the school supplies they need on the first day of school. 68% of our students are eligible to receive free or reduced lunches. It’s easy to help! The Quad Cities First Day School Supply Drive will hold its Iowa postal carrier collection on Saturday, August 8, 2015. Just place your donation of school supplies for Davenport Community Schools students in a box or plastic bag, if it’s raining, by your mailbox and your postal carrier will pick up it up as part of his or her regular rounds. Some of the supplies students need include: spiral notebooks, pencils, colored pencils, pens, crayons, loose-leaf notebook paper, washable markers, hand sanitizer, backpacks, scissors, erasers, pencil boxes, and other basic supplies. If you miss the postal carrier’s collection, it’s still not too late to help.
