Dear Friends, School has been a roller coaster of changes this past year and everyone looks forward to some sense of normalcy come September. Hopefully, everyone will be recharged and excited about learning. Our teachers have had to learn new methods of presenting their lessons with technology as well and have met many challenges to help our students.
Rural Services would like to do our part to help also. Each year we help families with school children obtain school supplies, backpacks, shoes and sneakers. Families that are struggling to make ends meet are very appreciative of this program. The students are allowed to choose their items in our “school store” which assures that they will have what is needed to begin their school year with more confidence.
Since school supply sales start early, we would like to ask your assistance in obtaining these items. We currently have a need for:
* plastic 2-pocket folders * wide-ruled notebook paper * zippered pencil cases * FAT pencils * small and large scissors * washable markers * EXPO black dry erase markers * cap erasers * index cards * blue-ink pens * 5-tab dividers * 1 ½” and 2” and 3” binders (not zippered) * two-pocket folders (yellow, red, blue, green, purple, orange) * highlighters.
If it is easier for you to give monetary donations instead, we will gladly do the shopping. We could also use gift cards (Wal-Mart, etc.) for families in need of shoes, sneakers and underwear. Also, if you have children or grandchildren who are no longer using their scientific calculators (Model TI-30XIIS) we would be happy to find another student who needs one.
Thank you for your continued support.
With gratitude, Rural Services Board Members, Staff, and Volunteers
