To help elementary-school children start the new school year on the right foot, Nassau County Legislator Ellen W. Birnbaum (D – Great Neck) is teaming up with the Manhasset-Lakeville Water-Fire District to sponsor a back-to-school supply drive.
Donors can drop off new or unused supplies from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from Aug. 12 to Aug. 27 (weekdays only) at the Manhasset-Lakeville Water-Fire District Office, 170 East Shore Road, Great Neck. Requested supplies include backpacks, notebooks, No. 2 pencils, colored pencils, colored markers, crayons, and glue sticks.
“We can all do our part to ensure every student is prepared to thrive in the new school year,” Birnbaum said. “I am proud to once again partner with the Manhasset-Lakeville Water-Fire District to sponsor this school supply drive and thank residents for their ongoing support of this effort.”
School supplies can be picked up, first-come, first-served, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28 at the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department, Company No. 2, located at 2 Community Drive. The facility is located behind Macy’s off of Community Drive.
