Pheffer Amato Starts School Supply Drive Monday at Office

This coming Monday, August 7th, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-Rockaway Beach) will start a two-month back-to-school supply drive at her district office, 95-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard in Rockaway Beach. The drive will collect basic supplies, such as backpacks, notebooks, pens and rulers, every weekday between 9AM and 5PM, until Friday, September 29th. "All children need basic supplies to succeed," said Pheffer Amato. "But having been a paraprofessional for years, everyone knows not every child gets equal access. I'm doing this drive because I know the South Queens community will step up to make sure everyone has the basic tools for educational success. This is a generous, tight-knit community, and we always come together to support our own!" Supplies for students of all ages, K-12, will be accepted. Needed supplies include:

- Pens- Paper clips- Three-ring binders
- Pencils- Crayons- Index cards
- Rulers- Paper folders- Dividers
- Pencil sharpeners- Backpacks- Composition books
- Erasers- Magic markers- Post-it notes
- Loose-leaf lined paper
