As another school year approaches fast, the City is sponsoring a school supply drive.
The drive would benefit Hollywood Elementary School, Paint Branch Elementary School, Martin Luther King Middle School, and Buck Lodge, all schools that are attended by students from College Park. Contributions of new supplies should be taken to two drop-off locations:
- College Park City Hall, 4500 Knox Road (behind the Smoothie King) Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 9:30 pm, or Saturday from 1:00 to 9:30 pm.
Davis Hall, 9217 51st Avenue, Monday-Friday from 7:00 am to 3:45 pm.
In addition to the packs of standard #2 pencils, colored pencils, blue and black pens, glue sticks, yellow highlighters, etc. items such as boxes of facial tissues, hand soaps and sanitizers, paper towels, and reams of white copy paper are requested. A full list of supplies is posted on the City’s website here. All items should be new, in original packaging, please.
