School supply project seeks more support

Published: Friday, Nov. 30, 2012 1:15 a.m. CST

A special thank you to all who provided school supplies or gave monetary donations to help support the School Supply Closet at 910 Second Ave. in Sterling. We are also very thankful for the volunteers who give of their time to help on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We have been open for only 3 weeks and have already provided a number of students with supplies needed to be successful in the classroom. With your continued help, we will be able to help many more in the months to come.

Our hours will be from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; however, if there is a need outside of those hours, please contact Bonnie Donnell, 815-441-1988, or Cheryl Colmark, 815-441-8652, for assistance.

If you have a desire to volunteer during our open hours, please let us know. You may also contact us by email at schoolsupplycloset@yahoo.com.
