City-Parish & Waste Connections collecting school supplies for flood impacted students
BATON ROUGE – Mayor-President Kip Holden announced that the City-Parish and Waste Connections have partnered to collect school supplies for schools in East Baton Rouge Parish and surrounding parishes impacted by last month's flooding.
Suggested supply donations include pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, crayons, markers, dry erase markers, highlighters, calculators, rulers, folders with brads, backpacks, staplers, staples, tape, tape dispensers, paper clips, scissors, glue sticks and binders.
At the end of the collections, Waste Connections will distribute all supplies to the Foundation for East Baton Rouge Parish School System and surrounding parish school board offices, which will then distribute the supplies to schools with students in need.
New and unused school supplies can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Waste Connections Recycling Facility located at 7923 Tom Drive. Supplies will be accepted in the drop-off boxes labeled "School Supply Collection" in the front lobby of the facility.
