Las  Ninas – OZZIE'S Back-to-School EVENT


Earn Las Ninas Community Service hours with a donation of Back To School items for the OIC event on August 15th. We are collecting items to make school kits for the students attending the clinic at OIC.


Donations are needed of pens, pencils, erasers, sets of 12 colored pencils, crayons, highlighters, spiral notebooks, rulers, erasers, glue sticks, etc. We are hoping to assemble 50 of these kits with one of each of these items included in each kit, all inside an OIC drawstring bag. There will be 50 to 75 kids at the clinic that day!

There are some great deals on these items now at Target, Office Max, Staples etc.

A donation is requested of approx. $15 worth of items to earn 1 community service hour. With a maximum of 5 hours allowed. Please put together a mixed selection of these items so that we can make the kits for the kids.

Any questions, please contact Alex Davis at 310-849-9113 or I will be collecting the items at my house at 833 Via del Monte, PVE until Saturday, August 13th. There will be a sign up sheet available to record your donation.

Your donations are much appreciated - Thanks for supporting OIC!!
