Now is an excellent time to clean out your junk drawers, your child's backpack, and your home or business office! Donate used, yet usable, school supplies--pencils, rulers, paper, glue, notebooks, crayons, scissors, folders, markers, dictionaries, etc. (no clothing)--to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) and Learn Shop, Inc.'s annual Drive for Supplies.
