HCPSS/Prepare for Success School Supply Drive, Through August 24, 2019

July 30th, 2019

HCPSS and Prepare for Success are hosting their annual drive to provide school supplies to HCPSS students in need. The supplies donated ensure that HCPSS students head back to school with the tools they need to succeed. Supplies may be dropped off through August 24 at Howard County libraries and recreation centers, Columbia Village Association offices, and Columbia Association gyms.

The cost of basic school supplies can present a financial burden to many families in the community. The Prepare for Success school supply drive helps families eliminate that cost and move one step closer to eliminating the achievement gap. PFS was launched in 2002 and grew into a countywide partnership to serve as many Howard County students in need as possible.

A complete list of supplies needed and additional information are available on the PFS website. Tax-deductible donations also may be made via check or online.
