Volunteers are packing 3,000 bags with basic school supplies for students to use at home while attending virtual school. Each bag will contain: 2 pens, 2 pencils, 1 eraser, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 glue stick, 1 composition notebook, a pack of crayons or a pack of markers, a lap-size white board and 2 dry erase markers. The bags will be packed at the Ardmore Avenue Elementary School (outdoors, weather permitting) from 11am-2pm. Everyone is required to wear a mask and stay a safe 6′ from each other.

This project is a collaboration of Teachers’ Teammates, William Penn School District, Senators Kearney and Williams offices and Representatives Davidson, McClinton and Zabel’s offices. This project was made possible through a $10,000 grant – from The Foundation of Delaware County’s Covid-19 Fund, a donation of 3,000 nylon bags from Main Line Health Services o hold the supplies, and supporting grants from The Community’s Foundation, Avid Pharmaceuticals through United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern NJ and the Haverford Trust Company. These School@Home bags will start students off on the right foot to participate in virtual school experience at home.
