School sup­plies also will be ac­cepted at any of the com­pany’s open houses on Sun­day.

In ob­ser­vance of Pru­den­tial’s 40th an­niver­sary in Hawaii, its foun­da­tion hopes to col­lect enough items to fill 1,000 back­packs. Wel­come items are Elmer’s glue sticks and 4ounce bot­tles, writ­ing sup­plies, com­po­si­tion books, folder paper, white erasers, binders, rulers and 24-packs of Cray­ola crayons.

“It’s heart­break­ing to know that thou­sands of keiki start school with­out ba­sic sup­plies,” said James Chan, drive chair­man and part­ner at the large real es­tate com­pany. “For nearly 10 years, our Back­pack to School has pro­vided chil­dren at home­less shel­ters with the tools nec­es­sary to suc­ceed in school.”
