YLD Needs Donations for Annual Back to School Supply Drive

The Young Lawyers Division is once again holding its Back to School Supply Drive to obtain donations for students in economically challenged areas of the city.

Through Friday, Aug. 22, the YLD will be collecting backpacks, notebook paper, pens, pencils, highlighters, notebooks, composition books, rulers, dictionaries, folders, binders, pencil cases and anything else that might be useful at designated donation centers across Philadelphia. All supplies will be distributed to local schools and recreation centers in Philadelphia.

As part of the drive, the YLD will host a happy hour and will be accepting donations on Thursday, Aug. 21 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Marathon Grill, 1818 Market St. The happy hour is being co-sponsored by the Workers' Compensation Section and Robson Forensic.
