Back-to-school drive

Fans attending this weekend's series against the Philadelphia Phillies will have a chance to donate new school supplies for students in the surrounding area of District of Columbia Public Schools.

Before both Saturday's 7:05 contest and Sunday's 1:35 series finale, fans heading the Nationals Park can stop by the Center Field Gates from the time gates open until the end of the second inning and do their part by donating supplies.

All donations are welcomed, but supplies being requested include the following...

* Backpacks
* Calculators
* Lunchboxes
* Pencils
* Pens
* Notebooks
* Crayons
* Glue Sticks
* Rulers
* Pocket Folders

With another school year quickly approaching, there are countless students who won't be able to attend class with all of the necessary supplies and many more families who don't have the funds to provide their kids with these necessities.

If you're heading to the game either tonight or tomorrow, please bring along a few supplies for the students. It's something small and easy you can do that will have an impact on giving the kids of Washington a better education.
