It's Back to School Time Again....

2nd Annual BackPack, School Supply and Book Giveaway

The Georgia Street Community Collective is hoping to give away at least 30 backpacks filled with school supplies to needy children. The kids will also have a large supply of books to choose from free of charge.

The date for the giveaway has not been set yet, but we are asking for donations from the Friends of the Georgia Street Community Collective to be able to supply the kids with the basics for the first day of school.

We welcome donations of any of the items on the following list, or cash donations so that we may purchase the items in bulk. Purchased items can be dropped off at 9352 Georgia St. or arrangements can be made for pick-up, if necessary.
Call 313-452-0684.

Cash donations can be mailed to GSCC, 9352 Georgia St., Detroit MI 48213
