Harriman begins back-to-school supply driveHARRIMAN — The Village of Harriman will begin a new community outreach program whose goal is to help in the aid of recycling school supplies and helping the less fortunate children of our community.

As the school year comes to an end, consider the following before disposing items:

• Did you over buy an item that will never be used?

• Is something lightly used and can be reused by someone else next year?

• Did you use one or two pages out of a spiral note book? Or just over bought because the price was right?

• If you don't plan on using combination lock again next year and know the combination, there is a great need for these.

• Did you purchase different kinds of books for test prep, that can't be passed down to siblings?

• Do you have string bags that can be reused or were obtained as a give-a-way?

• Do you plan on buying new back pack next year, but your current one could still could be used?

• Or are you just looking to help those kids in need?

Donations may be brought to The Village of Harriman, One Church Street, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or at the Harriman Police Department, One Maple Avenue, at anytime.

The village will be working with the Monroe-Woodbury School District to help the supplies get into the hands of the children that need them most.
