Operation Big Book Bag

It’s that time of year again!  We are in the process of collecting donations for our annual Operation Big Book Bag School Supply Drive.   Sorors are asked to purchase school supplies to donate to students in need.  Walmart has graciously donated 50 nylon drawstring back packs (the light “fun” backpacks not the sturdy everyday backpacks).  It is our goal to fill each of the backpacks with school supplies!

Each chapter member is asked to donate at least 10 items from the list below.  You can donate 10 of the same item, but please donate at least 10.  You can also donate MORE than 10, but 10 is the absolute minimum.  We are also accepting donations!


  • No. 2 pencils (Stick with this classic to avoid classroom competition over whose writing utensil is the coolest — or most impractical.)
  • Colored pencils
  • A pencil sharpener (hand-held with a top to collect shavings)
  • A large pink eraser (The old-fashioned ones do the best erasing.)
  • Ballpoint pens
  • A box of crayons (Teachers recommend buying a 16-pack for younger kids, more for older ones.)
  • Water-based markers
  • Spiral-bound or composition notebooks
  • Loose-leaf notebook paper (wide ruled and single ruled)
  • A three-ring binder
  • Pocket folders
  • A box for storing items
  • Highlighters
  • Index cards, ruled and unruled (for making flash cards)
  • Drawing paper
  • Construction paper
  • A ruler with English and metric measurements
  • Glue sticks
  • A four-ounce bottle of white glue
  • Scotch tape
  • A stapler
  • Scissors (blunt ended for younger kids, pointed for older ones)
