Kids’ Needs, a non-profit, all-volunteer group work­ing to help Engle­wood chil­dren stay safe and in school, is in need of school supplies.

The group col­lects dona­tions of new and nearly new school cloth­ing and shoes, new toi­letries and school sup­plies for boys and girls in grades K-12. Donated items are given to qual­i­fied stu­dents through each of the five Engle­wood pub­lic schools and through a newly opened store front on McCall Road. There is cur­rently a press­ing need for school sup­plies, espe­cially col­ored pen­cils, loose leaf note­book paper, spi­ral note­books, pen­cils, and three-prong pocket fold­ers. Plain, solid-color (black pre­ferred) back­packs are also in great demand.
