Park District of La Grange hits final leg of school supply drive

LA GRANGE – With just about three weeks left until August, the Park District of La Grange and the LeaderShop's collaborative effort with the Back To School Supply Drive will soon be ending.

The drive – which collects donated school supplies for the 2014-2015 school year – will go to children in the community who are in need of new school supplies. The organizations hope to fill 200 backpacks through the program before the Aug. 1 deadline.

Accepted items include solid color backpacks, glue sticks, notebooks, highlighters, packs of pens, loose leaf paper, packs of pencils, scissors and more. A full list of items can be found online at www.pdlg.org.

Supplies can be dropped off at the Recreation Center, 536 East Ave.
