Ensure they have what they need

Each year, North Kitsap Fishline’s School Supply Program provides children in need with basic school supplies for the upcoming fall.

The cost of sending students back to school adds to family budgets that are already stretched thin and some are unable to purchase items needed for their children. We greatly appreciate your efforts in helping us meet our goals this year to provide school supplies for those children.

Fishline’s School Supply Program is accepting donations for the 2013 school year now through Aug. 16. Donations can be dropped off at these local businesses:

— North Kitsap Fishline 18916 NE 3rd Ave.
— Second Seasons Thrift Shop, 18825 Anderson Parkway.
— Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce, 19351 8th Ave., Suite 108.
— Poulsbo Parks and Rec. 19540 Front St. NE.
— City of Poulsbo 200 NE Moe St., third floor.
— Starbucks, 21505 Market Place NW, No. 101.
— Edward Jones, 19740 7th Ave. NE.
— Edward Jones, 18887 State Highway 305 NE.
— Edward Jones, 19032 Jensen Way.
— Edward Jones, 20270 Front St. 
— Timberland Bank, 20464 Viking Ave.

School supply drives or any large-quantity donations should arrange a drop off day and time with me, Kathy Smith, volunteer school supply coordinator. Call 779-4191.

Supplies that are needed: backpacks, college-rule and wide-rule loose-leaf and spiral notebook paper, pencil pouches, supply boxes, pens, pencils, glue sticks, pink erasers, washable color markers, colored pencils, child scissors, pocket folders, and metal edged rulers.
