The group is asking for donations in the form of school supplies. The goal of the 2019 BTS/SIS Rally is to distribute 600 backpacks equipped with school supplies for students kindergarten through 12th grade.

Each backpack will contain pocket folders, spiral notebooks, loose-leaf paper, composition books, No. 2 pencils and sharpeners, glue sticks, crayons, markers, colored pencils, pens, a pencil pouch, index cards, scissors, tissue packs, calculators, highlighters and a ruler. NSDC NAACP is looking for businesses, organizations and churches that would be interested in donating supplies. They can coordinate with the group via e-mail at nsdcnaacp@gmail.com.
