Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer joined parents, faculty and students at I.S. 125 to distribute school supplies.

Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer is “driving” the students of I.S. 125 towards success.

The councilmember joined parents, faculty and students at the school, located at 46-02 47th Avenue in Woodside, on October 5 to donate supplies gathered from his 2nd annual Back to School Supply Drive.

The drive received over 4,000 items, all donated by members of the community. Supplies were collected at Van Bramer’s office and at five libraries throughout his district. Among the donated items were book bags, writing materials and rulers.

The drive supports a number of local schools in the councilmember’s district, and his next donation delivery will be to P.S. 166 in Dutch Kills.

“I am so proud to live in a community where everyone chips in and does their part to better their surroundings and enhance the lives of all of our children,” said Van Bramer. “I would like to thank all of those who donated to the drive. You have helped these students receive the tools they need to succeed. This is an effort I was happy to begin last year, and look forward to continuing every year.”
