West Genesee PTA/PTO District Council is Sponsoring School Supply Drive 

Click here to read article Supply DriveThe West Genesee PTA/PTO District Council is once again sponsoring a School Supply Drive. The purpose is to provide free school supplies for students in need of assistance who attend any school in the West Genesee School District.  Last year the program helped well over 150 families and anticipate the need to be much the same this fall. 

Supply Collections Boxes, labeled WGSD School Supply and decorated in blue and gold, have been placed all over the Camillus community including: St. Michaels Lutheran Church, St. Josephs Church, St. Lukes Church, Fairmount Community Church, Camillus First Baptist Church, Camillus Town Clerk, Tops Supermarket, Walmart

Some of the most needed items include: new or gently used backpacks, twistable crayons, dividers and binders. The group is also collecting glue sticks, pencils, pens, highlighters, dry erase markers, paper and plastic folders, notebooks, loose-leaf paper, erasers and index cards.

West Genesee students will collect school supply donations at the Walmart in Camillus this Saturday, August 8 from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Request Supplies: For those in need of assistance, please submit your requests by Saturday, August 15 by clicking here. Every effort will be made to fulfill your child’s list, but supplies are limited. First priority given to those students whose information we have received in advance. We appreciate the commitment of the Camillus community in making this drive successful!

Supplies Distribution: The West Genesee District Council PTA/PTO will again distribute school supplies for West Genesee families in need.  

WHEN: Saturday, August 29, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. – noon

WHERE: West Genesee Middle School, 500 Sanderson Drive
