Project Backpack 2017

The Amherst Regional Schools are once again collecting supplies for this community outreach program which provides new backpacks and school supplies for income-eligible students in our schools. This year, nearly 900 students in grades K-12 qualify to receive these items.

A collection bin will be placed in the Connector for donations. We are collecting new backpacks, spiral notebooks, 2-pocket folers, glue sticks, markers, crayons, pencils, pens (blue/black/red), colored pencils, pencil sharpeners, pencil cases, erasers, bookmarks, rulers, assignment pads, index cards, loose leaf paper, graph paper, 3-ring binders, highlighters, calculators (basic, scientific or graphing), protractors, compasses, flash drives, and combination locks for lockers.

Donations will be accepted through August 9th.

Thank you for all your help!
