Freed Maxick has an opportunity to allow employees the chance to assist the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County with their 2012 School Supply Drive. Please donate to help local at-risk kids start the new school year with all the supplies they need!

Supplies will be collected in the Buffalo office between Friday August 10th and Thursday, August 23rd.  A bin to collect these items will be in the 9th floor Training Center. We’ll also be holding a Jeans Day on Friday, August 24th in the Buffalo office with all proceeds going to this cause.

Needed supplies include:

  • 12-count colored pencils
  • 24-count crayons
  • Glue sticks
  • Index cards with lines
  • #2 pencils
  • Pocket folders in assorted colors
  • Lined white paper
  • 12-inch rulers
  • Yellow highlighters
  • Large pink erasers
  • Youth size scissors
  • Plastic school supply boxes (large enough to hold pencils, erasers, scissors, etc.)
  • Marble hard cover composition notebooks in assorted colors
  • Backpacks (large enough to hold multiple books and folders)

The Mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eric County (BBBSEC) is to help at-risk children reach their full potential through professionally supported mentoring relationships with carefully screened, well-trained mentors. At the end of the June 2012 school year, 97% of the participating children were promoted to the next grade level and 96% showed improvement in self-confidence.

Thank you for participating!
