Oswego, IL, Monday, Aug. 13, 2018—Local families enjoyed dropping off hundreds of glue sticks, pencils and highlighters to help students at Long Beach Elementary School start the new school year off right with the supplies they’ll need.
The supplies were contributed and collected by Moms & More Oswego Area members during their annual school supply drive. In total, the women fulfilled the school supply needs of 48 students at Long Beach Elementary, eight students from each grade level.
Members kicked off the drive with a school supply scavenger hunt last month. Teams were given a budget and supply lists with an aim to get the maximum quantity of supplies for their money. From there, members signed up to supply the remaining needs and many enjoyed shopping for the extra supplies with their children.
Each year the organization selects an elementary school within its coverage area – Oswego, Montgomery, Aurora, Plainfield, Yorkville and Plano – to donate school supplies.
