Pratt Area Community Council currently is hosting a back to school drive.
The back to school drive is for the families in the Bedford Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Clinton Hill and Fort Green Area. The goal is to be able to 100 children between the ages of five and 17 with a book bag filled with some of the supplies they need to get a good start in the school year.
Some of the supplies needed are book bags, pencils, pens, notebooks, binders, loose leaf paper, crayons, markers, scissors, glue, stapler, tape, calculator just to name a few. PACC is calling on community leaders to help ensure the area’s children have the tools they need to be successful this school year.
Any supplies you are able to donate can be brought to 1124 Fulton Street (Between Franklin and Classon Avenue) Monday through Thursday 9:00 AM -5:00 PM and Fridays 9:00am -1:00pm.
