School Supply Donations
Why Donate to LP PENCIL Box 
According to the state report card, 74 percent of Metro School students are on free and reduced lunch, the federal definition of poverty. Unfortunately, many families can't afford to purchase the necessary supplies children need in the classroom. Your donations help get school supplies into the hands of the students who need them the most.

What is Needed
Donations to LP PENCIL Box can include many items. Teachers need basic school supplies for their economically disadvantaged students but they can also use surplus office supplies, decorations for classrooms and other miscellaneous items. It’s amazing how creative they can get with items you may consider tossing!

Most needed items for summer stocking:

  • backpacks
  • primary paper
  • flash cards
  • pocket folders
  • cleaning supplies
  • awards-puzzles; games; etc.
  • construction paper
  • dry erase markers/erasers

Recycle Your Office Supplies in the Classroom

LP PENCIL Box will take many items your office may think of throwing away. Why not recycle them in the classroom? If your business changes its logo or design, we can take your old letterhead, folders, binders, pencils or other items that contain the outdated design.
