To help homeless children gear up for school, The Locations Foundation conducts its Backpack to School drive through this Friday at East Oahu Prudential Locations, 614 Kapahulu Ave., Suite 300, Diamond Head.

School supplies also will be accepted at any of the company’s open houses on Sunday.

In observance of Prudential’s 40th anniversary in Hawaii, its foundation hopes to collect enough items to fill 1,000 backpacks. Welcome items are Elmer’s glue sticks and 4-ounce bottles, writing supplies, composition books, folder paper, white erasers, binders, rulers and 24-packs of Crayola crayons.

“It’s heartbreaking to know that thousands of keiki start school without basic supplies,” said James Chan, drive chairman and partner at the large real estate company. “For nearly 10 years, our Backpack to School has provided children at homeless shelters with the tools necessary to succeed in school.”

For details, call 735-4200.
