School Supply Drive

The beginning of the school year reminds us of the financial burdens that many families face in providing the necessary school supplies for their children. I am excited to partner with the Fairview Food Pantry to collect school supplies and snack donations to ensure that all students start the year on equal footing.

You can drop off your donations to my office at 3845 Joseph Howe Drive, directly to the 3 Fairview Food Pantries, or to MLA Rafah DiCostanzo or MLA Ali Duali’s offices until September 7th. Once all donations are collected the Schools Plus team will distribute the supplies to families in need.
