A school supply drive is being held in the Twin Lakes area.
The goal of the effort is to help to make sure that all children served by The Sharing Center return to school this fall with the essential gear for learning. Providing these items for the children in the community will help to encourage their academic goals and achievements.
The main goal of the organizers of the effort is to provide each child with a new backpack and a $15 gift certificate for gym shoes, in addition to the typical school supplies. Please know that each student typically has a need for black low-odor, dry erase markers, anti-bacterial wipes, facial tissue, highlighter markers, crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors, and ear buds.
All proceeds will be distributed by the Sharing Center.
Donations are being accepted now until Aug. 7 at the following Twin Lakes locations:
- Messiah Lutheran.
- Community Library, Twin Lakes branch.
- Richter’s Marketplace.
- Dollar General.
Look for the Yellow Bus donation boxes.
