The Potential Development Program's School of Autism will be holding a back-to-school supply drive throughout the month of August.
The items collected will be used in the kindergarten through 8th-grade classes during the upcoming school year. The School of Autism is a non-public charter school for children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and last year, 52 students were enrolled, according to a press release from the school.
Some of the items needed for the upcoming school year include crayons, colored pencils, No. 2 pencils, pens, paper, tissues, construction paper, scissors, two-pocket folders, glue sticks and rulers.
Donations can be dropped off at the School of Autism, 880 E. Indianola Ave. in Youngstown between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays. A Potential Development representative also will be at the Southern Park Mall Community Day on Aug. 10 for anyone wanting to donate there.
