Donate School Supplies to the Samaritan House Back to School Drive

Dear Serendipity School families, friends, and neighbors,

Serendipity Preschool and Elementary School invite you to join our 2nd annual Back to School Supply Drive, in partnership with Samaritan House of San Mateo. Every fall, many school-aged children in our own neighborhoods head back to school without the necessary supplies. Samaritan House, an inspiring local charity organization committed to supporting people in need in our very own communities, is asking for donations of new backpacks, new children’s shoes, Payless Shoes gift certificates, and school supplies that will help to give local children a happy and confident start to the new school year. This year, Samaritan House plans to give backpacks to close to 1000 San Mateo County children in need. Last year, our little school collected 40 backpacks filled with complete school supply kits. This year, we would like to increase our impact, and YOU CAN HELP!

If you are interested in donating to the drive, you may either donate a complete supply kit along with a new backpack or donate any single item or group of items from the accompanying list. Please encourage friends, family members, and neighbors to join in, as well. Your donations should be delivered to either the Serendipity Preschool or Serendipity Elementary School office by Monday, July 24th, 2017. Please contact Mandy Rizvi at the Elementary School campus if you have questions about the drive.

Thank you, in advance for your generosity and support!
