Marina del Rey Toyota has partnered with Beethoven Street Elementary School’s PTA fundraising organization, “Friends of Beethoven,” to collect critically needed school supplies, and to gather donations for costs associated with the school, teacher’s assistants, and before and after school programs.

Because of state education budget cuts and tough economic times in students’ homes, many teachers at this local K-5 school have been purchasing composition notebooks, crayons, pencils and more out of their own paychecks to keep kids from going without.

Items being collected:

Boxes of Crayola Crayons, Crayola Markers, Avery shipping labels, copy paper, tissues, baby wipes, number 2 pencils, pencil sharpeners, highlighters – all colors, children’s scissors, Sharpie markers, Avery glue sticks, Avery glue bottles, wide-ruled composition notebooks, and anti-bacterial hand sanitizer.
