BCPS school supply drive enters overdrive

baltimore-county-public-schools-bcpsThe county’s school supply drive is kicking into high gear.

The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools invites local residents to participate in this tradition and to donate school supplies to students who will need them.

There are three ways to participate this year – making an online contribution, volunteering time, or dropping off donated supplies.

And if giving makes you hungry, you might want to consider dropping off your donations at one of two Slice restaurants. BCPS supporters who take newly purchased school supplies to the Slice location in Towson or White Marsh (along with a store receipt showing that they spent at least $10 on the supplies) will receive a free slice of pizza. Visit Slice on Thursdays and 25% of your purchase will be donated to The Education Foundation of BCPS.
