Special Request — Help our Students!

Smart Starts for Students and Piscataquis Area Students Still Needs Your Help!

We’ve been asked to help with a “last minute” push to help our kids who need school supplies for back to school. With just a week left, we haven’t quite met the need that exists! As of this writing some of the addtional items needed include:

140 Packs of Markers, 140 Bottles of Glue, 650 Glue Sticks, 1,200 #2 Pencils, 1,700 Pencil Erasers, 350 Pencil Sharpeners, 1,100 1-Subject Notebooks, 350 Packs of Filler Paper, 240 Composition Notebooks, 750 Pocket Folders, 184 Packs of Colored Pencils, 150 Rulers, 650 Pens, 350 Highlighters, 150 Pencil Boxes, 200 Zippered Pencil Pouches, 180 1” Binders, 100 Packs of Index Cards,

Any and all donations are welcomed and appreciated. Deadline for drop off of supplies or cash donations is August 17th by 4:30 pm at Penquis office at 50 North Street (across from the Post Office), Dover-Foxcroft so volunteers will have time to sort and package the items into backpacks that can be distributed in time for the start of school–that’s August 29th in Guilford (SAD 4).

Credit cards payments are accepted on-line at this secure site. Remember, every little bet helps. If you stop at Penquis, tell ’em Valley Grange sent you!
