Carpenter’s Shelter Hosts Annual Back to School Collection
Carpenter’s Shelter is hosting their annual Back to School Collection August 20-August 24. Every year, Carpenter’s Shelter collects and distributes school supplies to over 100 homeless and formerly homeless school age children. If you are interested in donating to the Back to School Collection, please see www.carpentersshelter.org for a full listing of items needed. Due to lack of storage space, Carpenter’ Shelter requests groups drop off donations from August 20-24 only. Please call or email Courtney Bishop at (703) 548-7500 x205 or CourtneyBishop@CarpentersShelter.org to schedule a drop of time.
Carpenter’s Shelter provides shelter, guidance, education and advocacy for homeless individuals and families who seek sustainable independence and stability. Carpenter’s Shelter opened its doors in Alexandria in 1988, and serves over 1,000 homeless and formerly homeless individuals every year.
