Annual Tools For School Drive
Many New Jersey children face the prospect of arriving at their first day of school this September without the most basic of school supplies. To address this, the AMI Foundation is launching its Annual “Tools For School” supply drive through August 19th.
There are many children right here in our own communities who are not properly prepared for their return to school, simply because they lack the basic supplies like pencils and paper. We invite the community to join us in donating much-needed school supplies, and thus help provide these children with an equal opportunity at a quality education.
The list of requested school supplies includes pencils, erasers, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, crayons, colored markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, highlighters, and soft pencil cases. Many of these supplies can be purchased at deep discounts at the area’s large retailers.
Donations can be dropped off at the AMI Corporate Office located at the Bayport One Office Building, 8025 Black Horse Pike, Suite 300, West Atlantic City, NJ 08232.
As in years past, the AMI Foundation has also purchased book bags to accompany the school supply donations. Once the drive is complete, the collected supplies and book bags will be delivered to elementary schools throughout the area in late August. To date, the AMI Foundation has donated over 3,600 book bags to area school children in need.
The programs, services and partnerships undertaken by the Foundation are designed to enhance the quality of life and improve the health status of community residents, and we believe this Tools For School Drive is consistent with that mission and vision.
This is another way for us to give something back to the communities we serve.
