Back-to-School Supply Drive at Jefferson Valley Mall

The Jefferson Valley Mall, which reopened recently, is holding their annual supply drive for area students and teachers with some assistance from the Lakeland Central School District.

"Our Back-to-School supply drive is going on now at Jefferson Valley," said the JV Mall's Heather Novak. This year, the mall is collecting supplies for local kids AND teachers. The district has provided the bus to hold the supplies. The drive will run from July 27 - August 10. The new mall hours are Monday - Sat 11 am-7 pm and Sunday 12-6 pm.

"Join us at the bus in the Center Court "Yard" and make sure to take a picture and tag us @JeffersonValley," Check out this list to see what is needed most and THANK YOU for helping us shine the light for our community," she added. "As always, we are proud to partner with the Lakeland Central School," added Novak.

Supplies will be distributed to the Food Pantry at St. Mary's, Mohegan Lake, and also to the Feeding Westchester for distribution.

The Alliance for Safe Kids Volunteers will be helping to gather and organize the supplies for the drive. "It is truly a community-wide effort," said Novak.
