At the Union home match on August 29, the Union will be hosting a school supply drive to benefit the City Team and Chester-Upland School District. The Union will have a collection bin on the plaza during the pregame festivities, and the SoBs will have our own bin at our tailgate.
As an incentive for people to remember to bring in the supplies, there will be a raffle for anyone who brings in supplies from the list (see below) will be entered to win a prize from the Union (tbd). You cannot buy a raffle ticket for these items, you must bring in at least a bag of supplies. With it being “back to school” season, you can find great deals at office supply stores (Staples, Office Max, etc.), discount stores (5 Below, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, etc.) or even department stores (K-Mart, WalMart, etc.).
We also had members collect supplies at their office or stores (with management’s permission) and bring in the collection on the day of the match.
School Supplies Needed:
- #2 Pencils
- Colored Pencils
- Construction Paper
- Glue Sticks
- (Please NO Scissors)
