Islanders Bank is collecting supplies for San Juan Island public schools

Every year, teachers must buy school supplies for their students who can’t afford them.

To help eliminate the burden on our teachers and help classroom learning, Islanders Bank is sponsoring a Gear Up for Our Schools campaign.

The bank is collecting:

— black, blue, green and red pens

— colored pencils

— dry-erase pens (fine and bullet tip)

— erasers

— highlighters

— index cards

— notebook and graph paper

— pencil pouches and boxes

— pencils and sharpeners

— pen, thumb and flash drives

— rolls of clear contact paper

— rulers

— school glue and glue sticks

— scissors

— spiral and composition notebooks

— three-ring binders with dividers, calculators

— water-based markers

— watercolor paints

— white board erasers

Collection bins are located at Friday Harbor Drug, The Office Center, Friday Harbor MarketPlace and Islanders Bank.

The campaign continues through Sept. 11.
