Silver Spring Cares Presents: Not Your Traditional Back To School Drive

With the new school year right around the corner, Silver Spring Cares is bringing another wonderful community drive to our area. Take part in the Not Your Traditional Back To School Drive, providing bulk school supplies for 7 schools in Silver Spring.

Not Your Tradition Back To School Drive will take place from August 5th – 23rd.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Back to School!

Yet, for many families in our community, this is a time of stress and shame as they already struggle to make ends meet. Many collections are being held for basic school supplies like crayons and glue and Silver Spring Cares is ready to help families by going one step further to meet the growing demands of today’s modern students.

Thanks to a partnership with YMCA Youth & Family Services/Linkages to Learning we hope to ease this burden for families in five elementary and two middle schools in Silver Spring! From individual family requests to providing bulk items for distribution to teachers and students, we hope to allow all children in our community to start the school year with confidence and dignity.
