The kids won’t like to hear it, but it’s true: the first day of school is just around the corner.
For many local families this is the time to do their back-to-school shopping. But for some students in our area it is difficult to obtain the school supplies they need in order to start the year.
That’s why I am hosting a school supply drive at each of my district offices in Dwight and Watseka. Please consider donating any item(s) you might be able to. This would include everything from large items like backpacks and lunch boxes to smaller essentials like pencils, kid-safe scissors, notebooks, or any other school supply that might help a local child prepare for the first day of the new school year.
