The Foothill Unity Center is conducting their annual "Back to School" event coming up on Thursday, August 18, 2011, at the Santa Anita Race Track. In preparation for the event, the Arcadia Police Department has placed a collection bin in the police station lobby through August 6th. The Foothill Unity Center is asking that donations of school supplies be made in order to help local low-income kids prepare for school. In addition to the usual school supplies like pencils, glue sticks, backpacks, lunch boxes, pens, and more, clothing suitable for school age kids is also being sought. For additional information, contact the Foothill Unity Center, at (626) 358-3486. Donations may also be made by mail or at their Monrovia facility located at 415 West Chestnut, Monrovia CA 91016. Please note "Back to School Fair" on any donation.
