Needful Things, the eclectic store in Tahitian Gardens, is holding a school supplies donation drive from Friday, Aug. 2 to Sunday, Aug. 4 to benefit incoming students whose family can't afford supplies.
The store is brimming with novelty items, memorabilia, jewelry, and even school supplies. Owner Allison Ferrer said school supply donations are being accepted for boys and girls, and the store will later donate items to local students.
"I know there are a lot of kids on the island who need backpacks and school supplies," she said.
Islanders who buy items will get a 10 percent off coupon to Needful Things and be entered into raffle for a surprise gift basket and gift certificates.
"All of the items collected are going to go to the kids on the island who need new school supplies," said Ferrer.
