Fill-a-Bookbag Drive by the Glen Cove Youth Bureau

Youth Bureau holds its Annual Fill-a-Bookbag Drive

Every year the Glen Cove Youth Bureau collects back to school supplies for children, K-12, who otherwise would not have these tools needed to have a successful academic year.  We are hoping to collect contributions for the over 300 anticipated students in need.  Monetary donations are gratefully accepted.  Checks should be made payable to the Friends of the Youth Board and sent to Glen Cove Youth Bureau,128B Glen Street, Glen Cove, NY 11542

A complete list of requested supplies has been compiled from all of Glen Cove Schools and is available at the Youth Center.  Basics are always welcome such as: backpacks, composition notebooks, spiral notebooks, pencils, pens and markers. Donation boxes are located at Glen Cove City Hall, American Community Bank, Glen Cove Senior Center, the Glen Cove Youth Center and at Senator Jack Martin’s office in Mineola.

If you have a disadvantaged student in need of supplies, please contact the Youth Bureau for a form.  Each child must be a resident and registered in a Glen Cove Public School.  To participate, completed registration forms must be received by August 25th.  Forms are available at the Youth Center, Glen Cove Public Library and online at the city’s website:
