The Navy Yard will be collecting school supplies to support two local elementary schools. F. Amedee Bregy Elementary School and D. Newlin Fell School are both K-8 elementary schools located in South Philadelphia.

The collection will take place Tuesday, July 16 through Wednesday, August 21 with drop-off locations throughout the Navy Yard campus.

Being part of the Navy Yard includes access to a diverse business community that offers opportunities not just for growth, but also initiatives to foster civic and corporate engagement in the community. One of the key areas of Navy Yard community engagement is focused on education and supporting, collaborating, and facilitating opportunities for the students in order to reach their full potential.

Suggested Donation Items

While donations of any supplies are welcome, the schools are looking for the following items to ensure their students are well prepared for the upcoming school year:

  • Primary composition books
  • Spiral one subject notebooks
