LANSDOWNE, Md. — Thousands of students in Maryland will be back at school virtually in September and WMAR-2 News is making sure everyone is ready to learn.
WMAR-2 News joined forces with Fulton Bank and the Preston Mitchum Jr. Foundation with a virtual back to school drive to collect money and supplies.
Thursday volunteers sorted and packed student supply bags at Lansdowne Elementary School.
"We have a range of supplies, we have basic curricular needs, we have supplies to support their writing, creativity. So, pencils, markers, dry erase, dry erase boards,” said Principal Amanda Mcbride. “We're even giving students their own drawstring bags so they can feel like school right at home with them."
WMAR-2 News has raised more than $5,400. The Preston Mitchum Jr. foundation is still collecting donations here. Fulton bank is also accepting donations at any of its branches.
