Greater Heights Chamber conducts school supply drive
The Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce has begun its school supply drive to benefit the students and faculty at Eugene Field Elementary School.
The initiative seeks to make school supplies available at a time when the Heights Independent School District is facing budget and staffing reductions.
Arlene SoRelle, of Tejas Office Products Inc., is chairman for the Chamber's Community Involvement Committee and is coordinating the program.
The list of needed school supplies is available on the Chamber's website.
There are 12 drop off sites around the city where supplies can be delivered, including Sign-Ups & Banners Corporation, Chase Bank, Central Bank, Northwest Chiropractic Clinic, Master Car Care, Allegiance Bank Durham, Comerica Bank, Tommie Vaughn Ford, PrimeWay Federal Credit Union, Adolf Hoepfl & Son Garage and Tejas Office Products. All of these businesses are members of the Heights Chamber, according to a press release.
Boxes will be picked up from these sites Friday, Aug. 24 and will be delivered to the school Friday, Aug. 31. A sorting party will be held from 5-5:45 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, in the large conference room at Tejas Office Products.
"The members and staff of the Chamber understand how critical supplies are to enriching the students learning environment," said Chamber President Kenneth Stallman, in the press release. "Our members have a history of contributing a myriad of supplies and support materials for teachers to use in developing lesson plans and equipping students with much needed school supplies."
Eugene Field Elementary School is located at 703 E. 17th St., Heights.
