Current Projects

Every month, Newton Neighbors launches a donation initiative.

August 1 - 18: School Supply Drive

Newton Neighbors is collaborating with the Street at Chestnut Hill and the Village Bank to collect school supplies for children in Newton and neighboring towns. Drop off your donations at any Village Bank location in Newton.

 

Our goal is to collect school supplies for 200 children. Donations will be distributed in time for the first day of school.

 

We would appreciate donations of:

  • good-quality new or gently used backpacks (backpacks for middle and high school students are the most needed). Please do not donate backpacks with monogrammed names or initials or company-specific logos.

  • good-quality new or gently used lunchboxes. Please do not donate lunchboxes with monogrammed names or initials or company-specific logos.

  • water bottles

  • new or used graphing calculators

  • notebooks (composition, spiral, and graphing)

  • pens and pencils

  • $25 gift cards to Star Market or Target for purchase of school supplies

 

Donations can also be purchased via our Amazon wishlist.
