The Statesboro Family YMCA is asking members of the community to donate items that will be used to fill a backpack with school supplies that will be given to students prior to the start of the new school year in August.

"The cost of purchasing school supplies can be overwhelming for many parents, and the Statesboro Family YMCA is proud to do what we can to help ease that burden for parents in our community,” said YMCA Branch Director Dorsey Baldwin. 

Now through Saturday, July 24, all community members are requested to donate a backpack filled with new school supplies, or donate items from the suggested list of school supplies, or purchase supplies from the Statesboro Family YMCA Amazon Wish List, which will be shipped directly to the YMCA.

“With just about 20% of children under the age of 18 years old living below the poverty line, as an organization committed to social responsibility, the Statesboro Family YMCA wants to do whatever we can to help those who need help the most,” Baldwin said.
