#HadassahConv2016 Community Service/Mitzvah Project

Thursday, Jun 30 2016

Did you know that one child goes through 75 pencils each school year? Yet many children can't afford pencils. That's why Hadassah is conducting a PENCIL DRIVE. Our goal is to collect 10,000 pencils for the Kids in Need program at the Atlanta Community Food Bank from attendees at the #HadassahConv2016!

The Kids in Need Program is based on the belief that every child deserves the tools they need for academic achievement. When parents struggle to put food on the table, it can be hard to provide basic school supplies. Every year, Kids in Need distributes hundreds of thousands of pounds of brand-new school supplies to teachers in low-income schools in the Atlanta area. Poverty shouldn't threaten a child's academic success.

Ruthanne Warnick & Lee Kansas, the chairs of our #HadassahConv2016 Community Service/Mitzvah Project, reached out to the Kids in Need manager to find out how Hadassah could help. "We can always use pencils," she said. 

Our goal is to collect 10,000 pencils for the Kids in Need program from attendees at the #HadassahConv2016! So bring pencils —  any color or design — with you to Atlanta. Pencils are easy to pack and lightweight. Even better, they'll help more children in Atlanta achieve academic success.
