Filling a need by filling backpacks
The Foundation for Douglas County Schools held its annual “Lend a Hand” school supply drive in July. Castle Pines Orthodontics stepped up as a donation drop-off location and asked patients to donate and bring supplies to their office on Max Drive.
The Foundation staff and volunteers assembled the supplies in backpacks and distributed to students (K-12).
“We were glad to ask our clients to pitch in to help Douglas County children for the next school year,” said Dr. Andrew Dunbar, Castle Pines Orthodontics.
“We loved seeing the kids be so excited to bring school items in for such a great cause,” said Jennifer Dunbar. She added that she hoped their office could be a donation site again next year.
Some of the supply requests included pencils, index cards, ruled paper, highlighters, dry erase markers, scissors, notebooks and binders, to name a few.For additional information, visit foundationdcs.org.
