AMI Foundation 10th Annual Tools for Schools Drive Benefits Students in Area Schools
School supplies will be collected at all AMI locations in Ocean, Monmouth, Atlantic and Cape May counties through August 20th to support students in need.
Many New Jersey children face the prospect of arriving for their first day of school in September without the most basic of school supplies. To help address this, the AMI Foundation is launching its 10th Annual “Tools for Schools” supply drive, July 23rd through August 20th.
“There are many children right here in our own communities who are not properly prepared for their return to school, simply because they lack the basic supplies like pencils and paper,” said Dr. Peggy Avagliano, President of the AMI Foundation Board of Directors. “We invite the community to join our physicians and employees in donating much-needed school supplies, and thus help provide these children with an equal opportunity at a quality education.”
The AMI Foundation has placed blue collection baskets in the reception areas of all 12 AMI office locations in Ocean, Monmouth, Atlantic and Cape May counties. Office locations may be found at www.atlanticmedicalimaging.com
The list of requested school supplies includes:
soft pencil cases.
Many of these supplies can be purchased at deep discounts at the area’s large retailers, such as Walmart and Target.
As in years past, the AMI Foundation has also purchased back packs to accompany the school supply donations. Once the drive is complete, the collected supplies and book bags will be delivered to elementary schools throughout the area in late August. To date, the AMI Foundation has donated 2,500 back packs to area school children in need.
