Back to School with El Centro Hispano

Can you believe it's already August 8th? This summer is flying by! Before you know it, it will be time to send the kids back to class and to start helping with homework assignments again.

This school year, we are doing something special for 149 of El Centro Hispano’s students - We’re collecting school supplies so that every single one of them can walk confidently into their new classroom, ready to take on the new school year. We can’t do it alone but if everyone in our community steps up and donates just one or two items, we’ll be able to meet our goal in no time!


Starting today through August 25th, we will be accepting the following items at any of our eight office locations:

  • Composition notebooks
  • Folders
  • No. 2 Pencils
  • Pencil sharpener/ erasers
  • 3-inch binders
  • Index Cards
  • Colored pencils
  • Rulers/ protractors
  • Highlighters

But wait, there’s more!

To show our appreciation for anyone who donates school supplies, we will be offering you a chance to win prizes from two of our partners: NYC Football Club and La Mega 97.9fm! For a chance to win, all you have to do is take a picture of yourself with your donation when you drop it off and share it on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #CabanillasCares. Easy, right?

So, next time you’re at the store, pick up a few notebooks, folders, and highlighters and drop them off at your nearest Cabanillas & Associates office location. We will be so grateful and, most importantly, the students you’re helping will be very appreciative.

Be sure to to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and to learn more about all the incredibly important work El Centro Hispano is doing in the community.

Hope to see you soon!
