School Supplies Drive
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 to Sunday, September 30, 2012
During the months of August and September, PCC will host a school supplies drive at all store locations in partnership with Alaffia Sustainable Skin Care to benefit children in Togo, West Africa.
We’ll collect pencils (wooden, #2), pens (ball-point: red, blue or black), white chalk, protractors and compasses. Providing just a few of these items to Togolese youth reduces the financial burden of education for poor families. Due to poverty-induced drop-outs, only 14 percent of 12- to 18-year-old boys and nine percent of girls attend secondary school in rural Togo.
Drop off your donations to the collection boxes located in the health and body care department of each PCC store. Alaffia will then deliver the items to students for the 2012–13 school season.
