Bellwood Elementary School has a population of just over 500 students in grades K-5. About 10 children per grade level do not have the necessary supplies for their school year, so just over 1 in every 10 children does not have the necessary supplies.
Donations towards this cause will go towards supplies for the students and all left over proceeds will go towards the school's funds.
In addition to this fundraiser, a backpack and school supply drive will be ran on August 19th, 20th, 26th, and 27th. Information on the locations will be included in the updates.
The target goal of $4,500 is the total cash doantions if there were no physical supplies donated. The amount will decrease and be adjusted as supply donations come in.
