Local Charities Need Help With Back-To-School Programs

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:  The Interfaith Food Bank, Salvation Army and Lethbridge Food bank are looking for donations of backpacks and school supplies.

 

The Salvation Army spearheads the "Back Packs for Kids" program, while the Interfaith Food Bank operates "First Day at School" and the Lethbridge Food Bank the "Snak Pak" program. All the programs are designed to give children in-need school supplies.

 

With distribution beginning on August 26th and running until September 6th. Donations of all school supplies are welcome but there are specific items in short supply. Those items include calculators, backpacks (particularly for teens and older students), pencil crayons, red and black pens, scientific calculators, math/geometry sets, duo-tangs and scissors for all ages are needed.

 

All three local agencies will also accept monetary donations which allows them to purchase school items that are in short supply. They are able to offer a charitable donation receipt for financial donations, as well as donated school supplies that are accompanied by a cash register receipt.

 

So far this year, 300 students have registered and the organization is expecting that number to increase as the first day of school draws near. Last year, 600 backpacks with school supplies were provided to local students.
