Hurricane Ian has devastated Collier County, many lost everything. With school resuming on October 6th, Collier County’s students and families are in need of school supplies as well as basic supplies. Champions For Learning has created a list of supplies that our Collier students need to ensure their academic success post-storm. We are asking our community to bring newly purchased supplies to St. Monica’s Episcopal Church (7070 Immokalee Rd, Naples, FL 34119), who will be collecting and sorting supplies. The need is great, but we know that our Collier County community will rise to the challenge.
For Elementary School students:
250 packs of colored pencils
250 packs of dry erase markers
750 glue sticks
500 composition notebooks
250 packs of lined filler paper
250 boxes of tissue
250 sets of markers
1000 packs of pencils
250 packs of disinfectant wipes
1000 pocket folders

For Middle and High School students:
250 3-ring binders

Hygiene kits for students and their families:
