Kiwanis Club collects school supplies to Parsippany Human Services

PARSIPPANY — The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany collected school supplies for Parsippany students who need supplies to start off the school year. Parsippany schools open on Tuesday, September 3.

“Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany wants to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies to Parsippany students in need. I would personally like to thank all the participating businesses Parsippany that helped us collect the supplies as well as our Kiwanis members” said President Karen DeChristopher.

Items collected included pencils, crayons, colored pencils, three-ring binders, scientific calculators, backpacks, pens, scissors, pencil sharpeners and pouches, paper, notebooks, composite books, glues sticks, highlighters, and other school supplies.

The supplies will be distributed through Parsippany Human Services for distribution to children in need. Any Parsippany student needing school supplies is suggested to call (973) 263-7163.

Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany said it has been getting calls from families in need for several weeks asking for help. Many of the parents are worried their kids won’t have what they need for school.

“Starting school off with the proper gear is important for a child’s wellbeing. We just want to make sure every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom, so their school performance is not affected,” said Carol Tiesi, Board Member and Community Chairman.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.  It is not religious based or partisan in any way. The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany meets every Thursday at 7:15 a.m. at the Empire Diner, 1315 Route 46.  We are 72 members strong and growing.  New members are always welcome.
