In the Summer of 2011, as part of the Monroe Ave Pubcrawl, we incorporated a "School Supplies Drive" drop off at Marshall St. Bar & Grill to help assist students in the Rochester City School District.
We received a list from the RCSD for items that would be useful to the students. This list included packs of #2 Pencils, Two-Pocket Folders, Glue Sticks, Green Folders, Colorful Construction Paper, Single subject notebooks, Packs of 3x5 Index Cards, Packs of Loose Leaf Paper, Kleenex, 8pk-12pk CRAYOLA Crayons, Backpacks, 24pk CRAYOLA Crayons, Safety Scissors, & 1st or 2nd grade level Reading Books
The drive was a success, with some kickballers walking in with bookbags jam packed full of crayons, paper, folders, glue, etc. It's because of people like you that make Rochester such a special place.
Here is just some of the results we received, as well as "Thank You's" from the Students, Teachers and Staff.
