The GoKids! School Supply Collection Drive successfully came to an end on August 5, 2019. The purpose of the drive was to provide students in need with school supplies to use throughout the year. Teachers refer students to the guidance counselors, who then provide the students with supplies and other counseling that they may need.
In total, approximately 1,460 pounds of school supplies were divided among all 13 schools in Nassau County (112 pounds per school). The supplies that were collected included but were not limited to: backpacks, notebooks, pencils, pens, calculators, notebook paper, scissors, copy paper, etc.
Barnabas extends its thanks to the Nassau County School Board, the collection sites (listed below), volunteers who helped box up the supplies and everyone who donated, for their participation in this important cause.
