As the next school year draws closer, we need your help to ensure that the children represented by our program have the school supplies that they need. The annual guardian ad litem school supply drive helps us to meet this goal.
Since our program represents children of varying ages, we need supplies of all varieties including notebooks, paper, pencils, erasers, crayons, backpacks and the like as appropriate for elementary, middle and high school students.
Community supporter Farmers and Merchants Bank serves as our annual collection partner.
"We are pleased to be sponsoring the volunteers and children again this year," said FMB Assistant Branch Manager Patti S. Evans.
Visit one of the below Tallahassee area FMB locations to drop off your donated supplies during normal business hours. You will find decorated collection boxes on display in the lobby (see photographs of two drop off locations).

Thank you to FMB for their continued support and to everyone for your kind donations of school supplies for children in our community.
