As schools across the U.S. prepare to open their doors in the months ahead, retailers are preparing for the second largest shopping season: back-to-school. With excitement beginning to fill the air, this is the time of year when families go out to the store to buy all the school supplies for their children. From new backpacks to cool-colored markers, many children are picking out their favorite items for the upcoming year.
But for many families, back to school shopping is more than just a shopping trip, it’s a serious financial challenge. That’s why Raymour & Flanigan has teamed up with United Way of Broome County. Together, we want to change the narrative so young children in our community can exceed expectations and discover their full potential with all the supplies they need.
How to get involved:
United Way of Broome County is teaming up with Raymour & Flanigan for the 3rd Annual Supporting Our Schools Supply Drive. From July 12th to August 18th, you can drop off your donations at the Raymour & Flanigan store, 220 Reynolds Road, Johnson City.
Following is a list of items students will need most for the coming year:
- Pencil boxes
- Colored Pencils
- Plastic folders
- Glue sticks
