Hillsborough Education Foundation School Supply Drive
Back to News

Armature Works is pleased to team up with the Hillsborough Education Foundation for the Erase the Need School Supply Drive, running July 30 – August 13 at Armature Works and online.

More than 150,000 students in Hillsborough County Public Schools qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Many students don’t have some of the most basic supplies they need to be organized and ready to learn such as paper, pencils or a backpack. Your donations can positively impact a student’s life, an entire classroom and the future of our community.

This year, Back to School for students may look a little different because of COVID-19 restrictions. Whether learning in the classroom or from home, thousands of our highest needs students are at risk of starting the new school year without the critical supplies they need for academic success. During unprecedented times like these, support for our students is needed more than ever and there are a variety of ways you can help.

Check out the list of needed items below and the many ways to donate.

Items may be dropped at Armature Works either inside at A.W. Mercantile shop or visitors can utilize our curbside to-go lane on Ola Ave.for easy, contact-less drop-offs without leaving your vehicle.

Those wishing to donate online to Hillsborough Education Foundation can do so here. Donations can also be made via the HEF Amazon Wish-list here.
