Dear Community Supporter:
The St. Mary’s County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) #7025 is hosting its 4th Annual Back to School Fair at the John G. Lancaster Park, 21550 Willows Rd, Lexington Park, MD 20653 on August 14, 2021 from 12:00- 3:00. The COVID pandemic has prevented our children from attending school in person and precious learning time has been lost. This community building event brings together students, families, community agencies, schools and local service providers to help ensure that students get back in school and have a sound and healthy start to the school year. Many resources necessary to assure health and success for children and their families will be provided. Backpacks with school supplies will be given away while they last.
We are seeking your financial support to help us provide school supplies, light refreshments, and materials for the event. This year we are requesting cash donations to purchase back packs pre-packed with school supplies. If you are willing to donate, please let us know the number of back packs with supplies that you or your organization would like to purchase. For example:
$10.00 – 1 book bag with supplies
$50.00 – 5 book bags with supplies
$100.00- 10 book bags with supplies
Checks can be mailed to the St. Mary’s County NAACP at P.O. Box 189 Lexington Park, MD 20653 and should be made payable to the St. Mary’s County Branch NAACP #7025. Or go to https://stmarysnaacp.org/back-to-school to donate.
Select “Donate for Back Packs” online. Under the” description" write in the number of book bags with supplies you wish to purchase to be donated for the Fair. Or identify other Fair expenses you would like to support, e.g. publicity, refreshments and activities for families. All donations to purchase backpacks must be received by July 15, 2021. Donations received after this date will be used for other Fair expenses as listed.
(NAACP Branches are 501c (4) non-profits and cash donations are not tax deductible.) Individual or business/organization contributions of $50.00 or more will be listed on the program. All donations are welcomed.
Thank you for your consideration of supporting this very worthwhile event. If you have questions, please contact me at 240-317-7047 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
