Nassau County Legislator Ellen W. Birnbaum and the Manhasset-Lakeville Water-Fire District are holding a back-to-school supply drive to collect school supplies for elementary school children. The event will be held from Aug. 17 to 26 on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Manhasset-Lakeville Water-Fire District Office at 170 East Shore Rd. in Great Neck.
For those who wish to donate, the items being requested are backpacks, composition notebooks, number-two pencils, colored pencils, colored markers, crayons, three-ring binders, looseleaf paper and two-pocket folders. School supplies will be made available for pickup—no questions asked—on Aug. 27 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department, Company #2, at 2 Community Dr. East in Manhasset.
“I am proud to once again sponsor a school supply drive with the assistance of the Manhasset-Lakeville Water-Fire District,” said Birnbaum. “Thank you in advance for your generosity.”
