Opportunities
to aid pupils
at Evergreen
School listed
According to Debbie
Breckner, principal of Ever-
green Elementary School, the
school has been receiving
phone calls from businesses
and individuals regarding do-
nation of school supplies for
this school year.
In the past the school has
provided supplies to students
for a small fee, but due to the
budget situation for Oregon
schools, Evergreen will be
only able to provide paper and
pencils. These supplies will be
provided at no cost, but fami-
lies will be responsible for
items including crayons, glue,
and backpacks.
Breckner said that the
school also serves approxi-
mately 41 homeless students.
The school provides a Family
Advocacy program in the
morning before school, pro-
viding students opportunities
to use school facilities for hy-
giene needs.
“While Evergreen sup-
plies the very basic supplies to
students, we do not have fund-
ing available to purchase
items like backpacks or gym
shoes,” said Breckner.
“We have students whose
shoes are entirely too small, or
whose shoes have holes in
them and are falling apart.
Several times throughout the
year we provide shoes and
clean socks to children who
need them. Clothing items are
always a need.
Breckner provided a list
of items that would be helpful
to the school and the students
it serves:
*Backpacks in good con-
dition.
*Clothing.
*New underwear in vari-
ous sizes.
*Shoes in good condition
and clean socks.
*Crayons, glue, colored
pencils.
*Toothbrushes, tooth-
paste.
*Combs, ponytail holders,
barrettes.
*Lotion, hair gel.
*Donations of money to
purchase items for students
who have unusual situations,
such as alarm clocks to help
them get to school on time.
The school will provide a
receipt for any donations, as
they are tax-deductible, said
Breckner.
