Project CATCH in need of school supplies for Back to School Bash

Children will be going back to school soon enough and Project CATCH - Community Action Targeting Children who are Homeless - a program of The Salvation Army, founded in 2011, is preparing for its annual Back to School Bash. As part of the bash, Project CATCH will give away school supplies to children in Wake County.

Project CATCH is asking for the community’s help in donating items to provide to students. Items needed include backpacks, pencils and pens, crayons and markers, binders, paper, and hand sanitizer. Items may be dropped off to the Judy D. Zelnak Center of Hope, 1863 Capital Blvd., Raleigh, Monday - Thursday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

The supplies are needed by July 31 and Project CATCH will give away the items by appointment on August 4 and 5 from 10a-3p.

For persons needing more information and to sign up to receive supplies, please reach out to Sharmaine Joyner of Project CATCH at 919-390-6495 or via email
