Your VOLUNTEER Fire and EMS Departments are running a campaign to assist elementary age students in our county that do not have the means to have a book bag or school supplies for the school year.

We are simply asking the general public to take any donated items such as backpacks, pencils, erasers, pens, highlighters, washable markers, glue sticks, scissors, binders, loose-leaf paper, composition notebooks, crayons, folders with pockets, and index cards to any Fire/EMS Department, or any Sheriff’s Office District Station between now and August 28th.

JUST DROP ‘EM IN THE BOX!!!

On August 28th, the Girls Scout Troop will fill as many backpacks, supplies, and distribute these items to the county elementary schools as appropriate.

“COME ON OUT – THIS WEEK IS “TAX-FREE WEEK” HELP US HELP THOSE YOUNGSTERS IN OUR COUNTY”
