School is starting for thousands of students in the surrounding area, and the University of La Verne has teamed up with Inland Valley Hope Partners to provide school supplies to children from low- and no-income families.

Organized by Carrie Lewis Hasse, Assistant Dean for Advising and Retention Services in Regional Campus Administration at La Verne, the effort produced a great response from the community and lots of needed supplies to the charity organization.

School supplies collected by the University of La Verne at its main campus and at its College of Law filled the trunks of two cars.

“I was amazed at the amount of school supplies that were donated!” Hasse said. “I literally delivered two trunkloads of supplies to Inland Valley Hope Partners. A local resident read our announcement, took the time to shop for supplies and dropped off two bags last Friday.  I was very touched.”

Hasse said the school supplies will be given to the children that reside in the Inland Valley Hope Partners shelter and also distributed to its four food banks, which will distribute them along with food and hygiene items.

Hasse said that, in addition to the school supplies collected on La Verne’s main campus, the university’s College of Law conducted its own collection, which proved to be very successful.

Inland Valley Hope Partners provides food and shelter to 80,000 people per year, according to its website. The organization has four food pantries, in Ontario, Pomona, Claremont and San Dimas and brings together faith communities, businesses, individuals and community groups in an effort to ensure the empowerment of people in need by providing food, shelter and supportive services.
