Metro-area Allstate offices collect school supplies

Items collected will benefit elementary in Commerce City

Posted

Denver-area Allstate agency offices are asking residents to help students and teachers start the year off right by donating school supplies to benefit Kemp Elementary School in Commerce City.

The supply drive runs through Aug. 16. The most needed items are No. 2 pencils, disinfecting wipes, notebook paper, highlighters and backpacks. New supplies can be dropped off at Allstate offices in Parker (10290 S. Progress Way, Ste. 204), Littleton (9032 W. Ken Caryl Ave., Ste. A-7B), Parker (11007 S. Parker Road); Greenwood Village (8933 E. Union Ave., Ste. 204); Wheat Ridge (6073 W. 44th Ave., Ste. 204); Aurora (6820 S. Liverpool St., Unit D); Denver (200 Quebec St., Building 600, Ste. 218); Lakewood (7586 W. Jewell Ave., Ste. 200); Aurora (941 S. Havana St.); and Littleton (10184 W. Belleview Ave., Ste. 210).

The school supply drive is part of a multi-state initiative of The Allstate Foundation’s program to ensure young people start school with the tools they need to succeed. The effort also helps educators to focus on preparing for the academic year instead of worrying about critical supply needs.

Each year, public school teachers spend nearly $500 of their own wages on supplies for their classrooms, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

In honor of the Allstate agency owners’ volunteer efforts, the participating schools and youth groups will receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grants to continue to help young people achieve success in and out of the classroom.
