Viewmont Mall Supports Community with Back to School Drive

Viewmont Mall is celebrating the upcoming academic year by encouraging our local community to “Let’s Pull Together!”  Viewmont Mall  is partnering with local nonprofit, Boys and Girls Club of NEPA, to set all students up for a successful school year.

From August 1 through September 6, shoppers can drop off their donations of backpacks and school supplies for students in need. The donation bin is conveniently located in Center Court.  Shoppers will also be able to check the progress of how much has been collected and encourage the community to “Let’s Pull Together!”

“We want this school year to be a success for students, and with the partnership of Boys and Girls Club of NEPA, we are excited to provide tools for students to reach their achievements,” said Rosemary Bohenek, Marketing Coordinator for Viewmont Mall.   Being prepared for learning with the essential supplies is the first step for students to reach their academic goals.

Suggested supplies for the drive include:

  • Backpacks
  • Lunchboxes
  • Pens and pencils, Highlighters, Colored pencils, crayons, and markers
  • Glue sticks
  • Folders, Notebooks & Loose-leaf paper

To assist shoppers in their search for school supplies and backpacks to support the “Let’s Pull Together” drive, items can be found at the following retailers:

Viewmont Mall will also ring in the new school year by hosting the “Back to School Get Together” Viewmont Mall Back to School Get Together on Saturday, August 20 from 12 – 2 p.m. 

Families are encouraged to bring a donation to the school supply drive. Kids will have the opportunity to decorate notebooks (while supplies last) and enjoy other activities including music, magic show, character appearances, glitter tattoos, balloon art and more.
