Can you donate needed school supplies?
Submitted By Lily Mei
This September Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) will be holding their 2nd Annual Great Fremont Backpack Giveaway.
Thanks to the hard work of district staff, volunteers and their families along with the generous donations from local corporations and community, last year Fremont Unified was able to help provide necessary school supplies to over 4,000 students across the school district. This year those involved hope to replicate this success as the need remains great.
When you are out shopping for back to school/office supplies, please consider picking up a few extra items.
To donate, drop off school supplies into the box in the lobby of the Fremont Unified School District Office, 4210 Technology Drive.
Alternatively, stop by the "Stuff a Bus" event, which will be held on Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21 at the Fremont Walmart, 44009 Osgood Road.
Tri Cities League of Volunteer (LOV) staff will be outside collecting school supply donations from customers and placing them in the FUSD school bus located in front of the store each day between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Donations will be transported to the district warehouse via the school bus, where staff will work with our schools to distribute the supplies to students in need.
Join this effort to share the joy and offer this wonderful support for our students. You can make a difference!
