Education is near and dear to my heart, so I was thrilled to be able to participate in the BTS (Back to School) PlayItForward Backpack Event, sponsored by Campus Book Rentals. I was given $25 to purchase school supplies and a backpack to donate to the child, school or organization of my choice.
I wanted to donate my items to the elementary school at the end of my street. I chose to purchase items from the Kindergarten supply list. I went to my local Walmart to shop for school supplies, so I was able to stretch the $25 , a very long way.. . I have to be honest – I spent more than $25 because I wanted all the items needed by either a boy or a girl. Here is what I got:
Quart Size Zip Top Bags
Gallon Size Zip Top Bags
Plastic Folder with Pockets
70 Sheet Spiral Notebooks
