School Supply Drive Gets Underway

PROMO copy

All children should have the tools they need in order to learn. Each year, parents spend between $60 and $100 to provide one child with requested/necessary school supplies. For many families this can be a hardship, especially if they have more than one child in school.

The Casper Area Education Foundation (CAEF), the Natrona County School District (NCSD), and The Salvation Army with support from the Casper Star-Tribune have once again partnered to conduct “Stuff the Bus,” a community-wide school supply drive to benefit students in need. The campaign encourages the community to donate simple school supplies at local businesses. Donations will be distributed to families identified by The Salvation Army and NCSD.

Donate supplies such as # 2 pencils, pens, notebook paper, erasers, backpacks, or just pick up a supply list located at local retailers. Supplies will be collected July 1st through August 10th. Supplies can be donated at any of the following locations:

*Albertson’s East

*Chesapeake Energy

*Keefe’s Flowers

*Platte Valley Bank

*Reliant FCU (Landmark and Plaza Drive Locations)

*SunSations Tanning Salon

*UW/CC Office

*UW Outreach Building

*The Salvation Army Center for Hope

*The Salvation Army Thrift Store

*NCSD#1 Central Services Building at 970 N. Glenn Rd.

Cash donations will also be accepted online at CasperEdFoundation.org

If you need help with school supplies through this campaign, please contact a caseworker at the Salvation Army.

    They have all summer to come up with supplies. Maybe they should buy them one package of pencils and one notebook at a time like I did when my kids were in school. Also they could buy school supplies, instead of cigarettes. That would be better for everyone.
