The Women’s Alliance is partially funding back to school starter kits for Schenectady High students this fall. Many arrive on campus with not so much as a pencil and while we cannot equip everyone, we can supply several hundred with notebooks filled with the basics to begin classes. Teachers direct students in need to the Guidance office where the kits are given out no-questions-asked while supplies last. If you would like to help, calendars, assignment planners, and backpacks are “extras” that are very welcome. When you are shopping, please keep this in mind. You can drop them off in the provided boxes at UUSS between 8/1 and 9/3. The rest of the materials we will buy in bulk. We will schedule a day to assemble the starter kits before 9/7—the first day of class.
