The 2019 Ladies of Charity Book Bag Project will take place through the month of May.

The annual program, which collects school supplies for needy children ages 5 to 17, is accepting donations in May.

New school supplies needed include book bags, crayons, folders, No. 2 pencils, composition notebooks, erasers, magic markers, glue, colored pencils, ballpoint pens, loose leaf paper, scissors, three-ring binders, highlighters, rulers and small tissue packs.

Monetary donations are also accepted.

Nineteen years ago, the program had 50 requests for assistance. The program now equips 700 children with supplies.

In July and August, the supplies are packed in book bags and ready for distribution.

Submit donations to Barbara and Angelo LaDuca of Grand Island, 139 Parkview Drive. For information, call 716-773-2888. Also, a collection box will be located in the narthex of St. Stephen R.C. Church, 2100 Baseline Road.
