  • SOS List
    School Supplies Needed
     
    The first day of school is right around the corner. When you shop for school supplies, pick up a few extras for the AEF Supply Our Schools program. Supplies will be used by Avon's teachers for classroom projects and for students in need. All supplies are appreciated, but the most requested items can be found on this list. School supplies are at their lowest prices of the year, so even a few dollars will go a long way toward supplying Avon's classrooms.
     
    Thank you!
