Delran Woman Leading School Supply Drive

Proceeds benefit Providence House.

Delran resident Laura Kulinski is spear-heading a school supply drive for local families in need. The drive will benefit the families of Providence House.

Providence House is a local organization that is committed to providing shelter and support to homeless, abused and formerly incarcerated women and their children in a hospitable, non-violent, compassionate atmosphere.

Last year, the drive was a huge success and this year is expected to be even better. The drive will run from July 18-Sept. 8.

"I have connected with Providence House in a special way," Kulinski said. "I have seen the great things that this organization provides, at no cost to the clients. This drive is a way for me to give back to them because they have helped so many."

The most needed item is backpacks.

Other essential needs include: pencil boxes/ pouches, marble composition books, pencils, dry erase markers, crayons, colored pencils, glue sticks, washable glue, highlighters, pocket folders and spiral notebooks.

“I think this is a great event and I applaud Mrs. Kulinski’s efforts in putting this drive together, for the second year,” Councilman Mike Schwartz said. “The school supplies that are raised do so much for the children of Delran and Burlington County.”

People interested in donating supplies can bring donations to one of the drop off locations:

* Delran Municipal Complex, located at 400 Chester avenue, Delran; or

* Pizza Amore located at 77 Hartford Road, Delran.

Donations can also be made by contacting Mrs. Kulinski directly at 856-461-7463 to arrange another drop off or pick up location.
