Again this year, SHIM is collecting items to help local students start the school year ready to succeed.
Thanks to the generosity of CentiMark Corporation, SHIM will distribute more than 800 new JanSport® backpacks to local students. SHIM is counting on the community to help fill them up with new school supplies. Items that are needed include binders, pocket folders, colored pencils, pens, combination locks, highlighters, markers, erasers and more. Please consider supporting or hosting a local supply drive, or making a cash donation. Donations will be collected until August 7. Learn more at shimcares.org/backtoschool.
All K – 12 students, regardless of income, living in the following districts are eligible to receive backpacks and supplies: Baldwin-Whitehall, Bethel Park, Keystone Oaks, Mt. Lebanon, South Park, and Upper St. Clair. Reservations encouraged. Contact Molly Patterson at email@example.com.

- Monday, August 14, 1-4 p.m. at Baldwin United Presbyterian Church
- Thursday, August 17, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at PPFC
- Friday, August 18, 10 a.m. -2 p.m. at Bethel Park Community Center
