CHAI: Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc., an agency of The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore, organized a supply drive for local schools.
In the past, CHAI has had specific suppliers, but this wasn’t the case this year. Now more than ever, there was a need to help students get supplies, according to Larry Schugam, CHAI’s senior director of community.
The items will be sent to CHAI, which then distributes them to the schools, according to Schugam. Schools have individual methods of distribution from that point.
Recipient schools include Bedford Elementary, Cross Country Elementary/Middle, Fallstaff Elementary/Middle, Milbrook Elementary and Woodholme Elementary.
So far, CHAI already collected pens, pencils, erasers, composition books and looseleaf binders. Some more items they need include colored pens and markers.
“One of the items we hadn’t anticipated is mini white boards, because students will learn from home,” Schugam said.
