Graduate School USA (GSUSA) is committed to making a positive impact on our community. Consistent with our educational mission, and in keeping with our community commitment, we are proud to announce our support of the students and faculty of Amidon-Bowen Elementary School, a District of Columbia public elementary school serving 350 students, from Pre-K through fifth grade, in the Southwest Waterfront community.

To that end, we have launched our First Annual “Back-to-School Supply Drive” campaign, August 7 – 21, designed to provide Amidon-Bowen with needed supplies for the upcoming school year. Like many schools, such contributions offer a critical supplement to what the school is able to provide, and go a long way in helping students learn and teachers teach.

In exchange for your donation you will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card. Simply leave your donations in one of the five (5) bins that have been placed around GSUSA, and then retrieve your gift card from the second floor reception desk.

Suggested items include:

Lysol Hand Wipes Notebooks Glue Sticks
Pens Colored Pencils Crayons
Notebook Paper Tissue Boxes Colored Paper
Pencils Scissors Hand Sanitizer
Highlighters Colored Paper Dry Eraser Markers

GSUSA is providing supplies valuing $1,000 as part of our institutional contributions to Amidon-Bowen.

We look forward to your support! Together, we can make a difference!
