Annual Supplies for Success Drive Starts June 14 in Irving

Financial status should not determine a student’s success in the classroom. To help ensure that, the City of Irving, Irving Fire Department, Irving Schools Foundation and several other organizations are teaming up for the annual "Supplies for Success Drive," running June 14 through July 23. For the past 15 years, the drive has collected and distributed school supplies to Irving Independent School District students from low-income families.

New supplies needed include backpacks (no wheels), pencil boxes, headphones, notebook paper, washable markers (eight-count packages), crayons (24 count), small scissors, composition books and glue sticks. A full list of school supplies can be found at Organizers say backpacks are the most requested item, but students need an array of supplies from folders to colored pencils.

Donations can be dropped off at any Irving fire station. Financial donations also are accepted. Donations can be made online at Checks can be made payable to Irving Schools Foundation and mailed to the foundation:
