There is still so much up in the air about what the school year will look this Fall because of the Coronavirus. Will kids be back in the classroom? If they are will they be there everyday or every other week? Will parents once again be sitting the kids in front of virtual learning?

Here in New York we are still waiting for the answers to those questions and more, but one thing is for sure, no matter where kids are going to school they are going to need supplies. Schools supplies can be a big expense for a family. Each year various groups get together and try to help by raising awareness and holding school supply drives. This year the need will still be out there no matter where the kids will be learning.

The Village of Harriman has already scheduled their Back-to-School Supply Drive to help children in their community. They realize that people are struggling financially this year and supplies will be more important than ever for those families. The Village is working closely with the Monroe Woodbury School District to make sure that donated supplies get to the children who need them most.

Drop off locations have been set up at the Village of Harriman, Village Hall on 12 Church Street and at the Harriman Police Department at 1 Maple Avenue. The Village hall takes donations from 8 AM to 3 PM or you can leave them in the box outside. You can drop off donations at the Harriman Police department at anytime. The donation deadline is August 21st.

So once again, think about the children you know who are waiting to get back to school and look into how you can make a donation in your school district.
