Salvation Army School Supply Drive At Target
The Salvation Army will be collecting school supplies this Friday in Bangor, to benefit local families in need.
It's still summer and we don't want to think about back-to-school, but the reality is, it's just around the corner. And as someone who used to buy school supplies for three kids, I can attest to how expensive it gets very quickly. A backpack that can handle all the books and homework they bring home is pricey enough, but when you add in all the other supplies, it can really strain a parent's budget.
So on Friday, the Salvation Army will be at Target in Bangor, collecting school supplies that will help make the back-to-school season a little less stressful. Folks can drop off donations to the Salvation Army in the Target parking lot tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. They need everything from backpacks to pencils. And, if you can't make it over on Friday but have a little time today, there is a donation box set up at Target.
Parents who want to sign their children up to receive donations can call the Salvation Army at 941-2990, but today is the deadline. Any excess supplies at the end of the drive will be given out to area schools throughout the year.
A box of crayons or some pencils may not seem like much to you, but they'll mean the world to a parent whose other option is to send their child to school without them. We hope you can help!
