Are you doing a charitable drive again this fall?

Gary Jaffarian explains the next community drive is for back-to-school supplies for Emmaus House clients’ children in local public schools.

Yes, Jaffarian Volvo Toyota participates in a charitable drive at least three times a year. This past summer we sponsored sneakers and supplies for children in our area attending School Suppliesbasketball and other camps in the area. This month we are again collecting back-to-school supplies for those children in the Haverhill Public Schools who are the less fortunate clients of Emmaus Inc., which provides services for homeless and needy families. I love their slogan: “Where everybody matters.” They provide both immediate assistance and long-term solutions through emergency shelters, affordable housing, job training, and more.

Without the generosity of the community, the clients of Emmaus House may not have new backpacks or school supplies that are needed. There are some great sales on school supplies this month, so please consider picking up some extra supplies and dropping Emmaus house and tagthem off to the Jaffarian Showroom by Monday, August 21st. The first day of school in Haverhill is August 29th, and we’d like to get the supplies to them in advance of opening day.

If you are a business owner or work in a company that has an overstuffed supply cabinet, consider asking for permission to donate extra supplies to Emmaus House clients. The children will be so excited to have new backpacks and supplies.

The administration did an inventory of the supplies and indicated they really need the following this year:
• Larger size backpacks in neutral colors for the older kids
• Binders
• Notebooks
• Folders
• Pens, Pencils, Crayons, Markers and Highlighters.

“Anything that gets donated will be used and very much appreciated,” said the Emmaus House spokesperson. Let’s fill up a truckload full of supplies again this year. I’d like to top last year’s successful drive. Thanks for anything you can contribute.
