Wright Bros. Real Estate is looking to help assist People to People’s program called Back to School With Dignity. If you haven’t already heard about this incredible program, here’s what you need to know. Since 1994, the non-profit organization has been providing students in grades K through 12 from low-income families with school supplies that get them started with the tools they need to have a successful school year. The program has grown from providing 35 students backpacks full of supplies in 1994 to giving away over 2,000 in previous years, with this year expecting to give out even more.

Here’s what you can do: When you are out shopping, purchase any school supplies listed below and drop them off at the Wright Bros.’ office at 53 S Broadway in Nyack any time before Tuesday, August 13th. The backpacks will then be dropped off to the People to People office.

It is said, “Education is widely acknowledged as a key factor in breaking the cycle of poverty.” Let’s help Rockland’s children start off on the right foot this school year by contributing to BACK TO SCHOOL WITH DIGNITY!

Shopping List for Supplies Needed:

#2 Pencils                                 Pocket Folders                          Rulers

Colored Pencils                       Binders (1.5” or larger)           Scissors
