Lions Collect School Supplies
Wahiawa Lions Club will collect school supplies and monetary donations on the next three Saturdays for needy young students at Wahiawa schools.
The drive is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday and Aug. 7 at Wahiawa Shopping Center near Longs, and during the same hours at Tamura’s Market Saturday and Aug. 14.
Recent data indicates that 44 percent of Wahiawa households don’t make enough income to get by, which is why the Wahiawa Lions is stepping up to help. Supplies needed include No. 2 pencils, red and black ballpoint pens, three-hole wide-ruled binder paper, portfolios with inside bottom pockets, bar and pencil-top erasers, glue, paper towels, napkins, facial tissue, liquid soap, boxes of eight large, 16 or 24 crayons, Crayola colored pencils and marker sets, water color paint sets, marble composition books, Sharpie permanent black markers, yellow highlighters, manila folders and scissors.
Last year’s drive raised $1,800 and collected in 600 pounds of supplies.
