Garfield Community 2018-19 Supply Drive

Join the GHS community and contribute to the Supply Donation Drive for students and teachers for the 2018-2019 school year!

The start of the school year is a time when students and teachers need the most support. As a community, we want to make sure that all students have access to resources that help them feel prepared for their classes. And for teachers to be confident that their students can access resources at school.

Below is a list of supplies that are needed for the Supply Donation Drive. The Drive is underway now and runs through Wednesday, Oct. 31.


  • 3-Ring binders
  • Folders (2 pockets)
  • Loose leaf paper (college-ruled or wide-ruled)
