RCHO's Adopt a Student School Supply Drive

***PLEASE NOTE: This event runs for the entire month of August!***

"What's the Event?":

During the entire month of August, the Real Charitable Housewives of Orlando will be collecting ANY AND ALL kinds of school supplies and backpacks for Palmetto Elementary School in Orlando, FL. We have no set supply list...any and all school supplies of any kind are welcomed and appreciated! This is a Title I school in which 100% of the students receive free lunch. They could use all the help they can get! Now is the time to take advantage of those great Back-to-School Sales!

"What can I do to help?":

We are asking volunteers to designate themselves as pick-up or drop-off 'locations' for others and help gather as many supplies as possible.
Feel free to add this flyer and event to your wall to help promote it! Invite friends over for a Mom's Morning In (or Out) and gather supplies over coffee or at the park. Maybe have a home-based business party and invite attendees to bring some school items with them! Maybe you can hold an office-wide collection! Don't forget to get your children involved!

"I have donations! Now what?"

Post here on the Event page that you have supplies and need to arrange a pickup or feel free to email us at!

***If you know of any businesses in the area that would like to designate themselves as school supply drop-off locations we would be very appreciative! ! We will announce them on our page as a Real Charitable Businesses!

YOU can help make this a great school year for some very deserving kids! Thank you for your support!​o
