School supply drive for children and teens

Family ReEntry Inc. is conducting a school supply drive for children and teens who receive services through its youth programs within the greater Bridgeport, Norwalk and Stamford areas.

Programs include counseling, case management and mentoring support to vulnerable youth impacted by family violence, parental incarceration and juvenile delinquency. Many of these families are facing economic hardships and are in need of extra support.

New backpacks, general school supplies for elementary, middle school and high school students are needed. Gift cards to Target, WalMart and Staples, as well as monetary donations to Family Reentry Inc. (designated to school supply drive) will also be welcomed. Donations will be collected until Aug. 18.
