As September approaches, one of 's main missions is providing thousands of children with the basics that they'll need to start a new school year.
As Rockland County's largest food pantry, People to People's program is still going on. Rand Realty began a school supply drive 15 years ago to offer their local Rockland offices as drop off locations for supply donations.
Although the supply drive at Rand Realty has ended, school supplies can still be dropped off at on Monday through Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., on Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The program aims to give school supplies to at-risk Rockland students. People to People is in need of the following supply donations:
- Eight-tab dividers

- Number 2 pencil cases
- loose leaf paper
- white index cards
- marble composition books
- three-subject spiral notebooks
- five-subject spiral notebooks
- 1' binders
- graph paper
- pocket folders
- blue or black pens
- pencil sharpeners
- Broad-tipped markers
- Calculators and Scientific calculators
- Glue sticks
While People to People volunteers are trying to get the school supplies to children, they are also supplying families in Rockland with all kinds of nutritious groceries including meat, poultry, fresh fruits and vegetables each month.
