If you haven’t already heard about People to People’s wonderful program called Back to School With Dignity, here’s what you need to know.  Since 1994, the non-profit organization located at 121 West Nyack Road in Nanuet 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 backpacks full of supplies in 1994 to school age children to giving away over 2000 in 2013, with this year expecting to give out even more. 

Grants, financial contributions and collection efforts have come from numerous local businesses and civic organizations.  But that’s not to say individuals cannot still contribute. They can!  There’s still one week left.  Here’s what you do:  When you are out shopping, purchase school supplies listed below and drop them off at the People to People office at 121 West Nyack Road in Nanuet (one street over from Rockland Bakery).    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!  

DONATION DROP-OFF: Opening days and hours are Monday – Wednesday 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. & Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.   Through Friday, August 29th.  
 Supply Shopping List for Supplies Still Needed:  Binders (1.5” or larger) Two-pocket folders  Loose Leaf Paper Crayons Rulers Pencils & Erasers  Pens (Blue/Black/Red) Marble Composition Notebooks And of course, Backpacks!
