VFW Auxiliary seeking school supplies

Editor:

School is almost ready to open and the children will, once again, “get back to the books”. Unfortunately, some children will not be able to afford the necessary supplies to make learning easier for them.

The VFW Auxiliary to Post #1388 is collecting school supplies to give to the local schools so they can distribute needed items when necessary. Many students arrive with nothing and to save embarrassment, the teachers give them notebooks and pencils.

I know how this works. My parents were teachers and were always buying class room items for the children who didn’t have them. We will be collecting school supplies through September and then take them at intervals to the local schools. Please help us out. Donate a few things. Pick up something at the grocery, Dollar Store, or Staples when you buy your own child’s supplies. We, the schools, and students, Thank You.

God Bless Our Veterans and God Bless America!

Lauralyn V. Palmer,
Secretary,VFW Auxiliary #1388
