With summer break well underway, it's already time to start getting ready for a new academic year! Tools for School, our ongoing outreach to our friends in Ironton, will begin collecting school supplies on June 26.

The distribution of book bags and supplies will be Aug. 6.

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Jason and Melissa Wheeler for heading up this project for the third year. Many people need to work together to make this project a success. We need volunteers and have lots of different opportunities.

We need your help with campaign awareness and volunteer recruitment, checking the back-to-school ads for needed items and shopping for supplies in July, baking cookies for the giveaway event, sorting and counting donated items in mid through late July, and traveling to Ironton for the backpack giveaway.
