Toward the end of the year, students empty their lockers and teachers empty their classrooms, and they both throw away school supplies, which are in very good condition. These supplies are wasted when they can go to people who need them.

Here at Watertown High School, juniors Hina Rafiq and Melanne Ghahraman are organizing a school supply drive that will benefit the Kids In Need Foundation. The drive will run through Friday, June 15. Their goal is to get these extra supplies to Kids In Need to be distributed.

“Instead of throwing away school supplies, you might as well donate them,” Hina said.

As to why they wish to do this drive, Melanne said, “I don’t think that it is fair that kids cannot get the same education as others based on their lack of supplies.”

They are looking to collect school supplies — everything from crayons to calculators are needed. Any basic supplies such as binders, paper, pencils, erasers, scissors, colored pencils, and markers can be donated. There is no specific grade level that the supplies are needed, so anything that can be donated would be appreciated.

There are donation boxes set up around Watertown High: one in the library, one in the art wing, and one in guidance. Anyone can donate school supplies in good condition.

(For more information about the drive or to donate contact Melanne Ghahraman at [email protected] or Hina Rafiq at [email protected]. For more information about Kids In Need Foundation, go to https://www.kinf.org/.)
