Local retailers Pitch In for school supplies

Local retailers Pitch In for school supplies

Local retailers, Vision Communications, Callais Office Supply and Walmart, are joining together to help raise the most needed school supplies for the Lafourche Parish Public Schools’ upcoming school year.

Since 2010, Vision Communications and Callais Office Supply have donated cases of copy paper to local schools in an effort to assist with the shortage of paper for teachers. Last year an additional school supplies fundraiser was established with the added assistance of the Walmart locations in Galliano and Mathews.

Last year’s school supply drive collected over 5900 school items and received cash donations for a total value of $9,096.

Vision employees will be on-site collecting school supplies at the Galliano Walmart, August 1-3 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and on August 14-16 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.; and at the Mathews Walmart on August 7-9 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Also, special drop-off bins will be available for dropping off school supplies at Vision Communications lobby, 115 West 10th Blvd, Larose, and Callais Office Supply, 14402 W. Main St, Cut Off, from July 31 to August 16.

The following school supplies are being collected at the “Pitch In! Lafourche” locations: ink pens (blue or black), 1 or 3 subject compositions, Kleenex, #2 pencils, Germ-X, USB flash drives, loose leaf paper (wide rule), clear or mesh school bags, belts (black), 3-ring binders (1 inch or 1.5 inch), journal (“marbled” cover) books, staples, copy paper, sticky note pads, dry erase markers, erasers and cleaner spray, note cards (small or large), and solid white polo shirts (s-xxl).
