Each year, North Kitsap Fishline’s School Supply Program provides children in need with basic school supplies for the upcoming school year.
The cost of sending students back to school adds to family budgets that are already stretched thin and some are unable to purchase items needed for their children. We greatly appreciate your efforts in helping us meet our goals this year to provide school supplies for those children.
Fishline’s School Supply Program is accepting donations for the 2012 school year beginning now through Aug. 17. Donations can be dropped off at these local businesses:
