100 Ways to Give: backpacks for Coit Academy


The Counseling & Career Center, Disability & Occupational Support Services and Student Support Services teams along with others across campus, gathered over 100 backpacks full of school supplies for the students of GRPS’s Coit Creative Arts Academy.

Each backpack was filled with the following supplies:

  • Ream of note book paper
  • Spiral bound note book
  • Package of pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Scissors
  • Eraser
  • Pens
  • Glue Sticks
  • Box of Crayons
  • Box of Colored pencils
  • Box of Markers
  • Pocket Folders
  • Zippered Pencil Pouch

There were additional supplies of the above beyond those needed for the 100 backpack, these too were donated to the school. The teachers at Coit Elementary were very excited about these supplies for their students, as this school serves many low income families.

This effort was led by Rosario Montes-Sutton who has been a reading mentor at Coit for many years.

Thanks to all those who helped make this donation happen through your generous gifts, time (assembling all the backpacks & making the delivery).
