Back-to-school drive to benefit borough students


NAUGATUCK — Two employees of Student Transportation of America in Naugatuck, the bus company for the borough school system, are hoping to help children return to school in the fall stocked with supplies.

Krizti Marin and Jessica Wyman have organized a back to school drive to collect school supplies for children. The drive is Aug. 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in front of Walmart, 1100 New Haven Road. Donations of supplies, from backpacks to pencils, will be collected.

Marin and Wyman are working with Naugatuck Youth Services to distribute the supplies. Those who donate items will also receive a raffle ticket for each item donated for a chance to win prizes.
