Help ‘Fill the Van’ with school supplies for local single-parent families


ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA) — With school starting in only a few weeks, a northwest Arkansas nonprofit is looking to make sure children have what they need to succeed in the classroom.

The Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Benton County is collaborating with Coldwell Banker Harris McHaney & Faucette to fill a van with school supplies.

The real estate company has worked with the Single Parent College Fund for about 15 years and event organizers said donating can make a big difference in a small way.

“I know when I was in school, having a new backpack, having new tools, these are things that we as a community can help to make an impact on a child’s life,” said Michelle Wallace with Coldwell Banker. “Just by buying a little pencil when we go to the grocery store.”

Items needed are:

  • Highlighters
  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Composition Notebooks
  • Folders w/ brads
  • Wide & College ruled paper
  • Pencil holders
  • 24 count crayons
  • Gift cards anywhere school supplies are sold
