Better Together collecting school supplies

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. – Milton’s Better Together volunteer organization is again partnering with nonprofit North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) to collect supplies for its annual Back to School Health and Wellness Event Aug. 9.

All supplies must be collected by Aug. 4 to ensure distribution to students, said Community Builder Wayne Boston.

Event organizers need new backpacks and various school supplies like paper and pencils. In addition to providing school supplies, NFCC will also be conducting health and wellness screenings for all families. Last year, some 498 families received assistance through this program.

Residents who wish to pitch-in may drop supplies off at Milton’s City Hall, located at 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Residents may also arrange for pickup of larger donations by contacting Boston at 678-242-2512 or wayne.boston@cityofmiltonga.us.

Better Together is a volunteer organization of Milton residents looking for unique and fun ways to connect with neighbors. For more information on Better Together or any of its activities, please contact Boston.
