City of Scottsdale, SUSD to provide school supplies to low-income students

As many as 5,000 children attending Scottsdale Unified School District are eligible for free and reduced lunches.

When it’s time to return to school in the fall, many of these children do not have access to new school supplies, clothes and backpacks. SUSD and the City of Scottsdale are teaming up to provide these school supplies to more than 800 low-income students, according to a press release.

For more than 40 years, Scottsdale’s Vista del Camino Community Center and Concerned Citizens for Community Health have successfully sponsored this program.

If you’d like to help, donations of backpacks and clothing can be dropped off at the SUSD Education Center, 3811 N. 44th Street in Phoenix, and monetary donations can be sent to “Back to School Program 2015” Concerned Citizens for Community Health, 7700 E. Roosevelt St., Scottsdale, AZ 85257.
