Schweyer collecting school supplies

ALLENTOWN, July 21 – State Rep. Peter Schweyer is leading an effort to collect school supplies at his Allentown office, 1912 S. Fourth St.

“As a strong supporter of public education, I believe we should do everything possible to ensure that all students have adequate school supplies, regardless of where they attend school,” said Schweyer, D-Lehigh.

To that end, throughout the year Schweyer’s office serves as a collection point for school items such as pencils, pens, notebooks, backpacks, crayons or anything else students need for their classroom.

“If you would like to help local schoolchildren, please consider dropping off a few supplies when you’re near my office. Let’s do our part to help every student in the Allentown School District be equipped to succeed,” he said.
