Here is what is needed:

Crayons
Tissues
Pencils - 1 dozen
Pencil Box
Scissors
Glue Sticks
Markers (washable)
Ruler

Naturegirl said she had paper and pencils. I'll check on glue sticks this weekend and crayons. If you would like to make a donation, you are not required to supply all 24. Hopefully, that will open it up to more folks.

I will check on sissors. I have a place to stuff them on Tuesday morning at 10:00 am. If want to help let Madea or me know and we will PM the location to you. We will take them to the BOE after they have been filled.

24 back packs filled and delivered. The only item we were missing to have the list complete was the washable markers. They were delivered to Nina at the BOE Bldg this afternoon. Thank you to Madea, nature girl and to Madea's wonderful son and daughter for a job well done! :love :CLAP DGITW the backpacks were great and held everything very well. I will send a picture of them to you soon. I extend a "thank you" from the 24 kids who will get them and the school supplies they contain. :love

Well schnikies. I missed this, dadgumit. :BH
We missed you. I did take some photos of the donations and I plan to send some to DGITW to show her what the backpack (book bags) looked like. She never saw them but she was the one who ordered and paid for them.

The book bags we filled were backpack type book bags. You must have missed the discussion about the date. I think Madea closed it and opened this one. Madea suggested the date because she was off work that day. Get in touch with MrsG at the other site. They are doing some and she is with the food bank.
