CHARITY Give Write has collected and distributed stationery donations to 41 WA schools in the lead up to term one, including Clarkson Community High School.
Teachers from the school visited the charity’s Subiaco towards the end of the holidays to collect 80 packs to help students who start the year with no stationery.
The packs contained pencil cases filled with school list basics – a set of textas, crayons, pencils, pens, a ruler, sharpener, eraser, highlighter and glue stick.
“Give Write takes donations of new and used school stationery to recycle, repackage and re-gift to kids in need in WA that start the school year with nothing,” chief executive Anita Bell said.
“This is our inaugural year, and we had 22 schools take part in end of year donation drives, and so far have saved over 1230kg of stationery from local landfill by putting together 750 Give Write School Packs and opening our free teachers’ store.
“Along with Clarkson Community College, we have been able to help 41 WA schools with free stationery; from the Kimberley to the Great Southern.”
