Back to School Supply Request
Back to School is an expensive time of year. Many local families struggle to get the required school supplies for their children due to financial difficulty. If you are able purchase a few extra school supplies to help out local families, that would be appreciated. Some ideas of much needed supplies include lined, blank and graph paper, pencils and erasers, earbuds, and dividers, although all donations are appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at the Community Services office located in the Community Cultural Centre at 9502 100 Ave., at the Morinville Food Bank, or the Midstream Society.
For more information please contact Melonie at 780-939-7833.
