School supplies to be available this summer

Published: Saturday, May 10, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

A big thank you to all who volunteered or provided supplies to the School Supply Closet, 910 Second Ave., Sterling. We supplied more than 800 students with necessary school supplies throughout this past school year.

We are planning for about 1,200 students for the 2014-15 school year. We will be closing the School Supply Closet for the summer and will reopen the middle of July for the new school year. However, we realize there is summer school and college during the summer.

Therefore, supplies will be available by calling 815-441-1988 or 815-441-8652. We will be happy to make arrangements to help when needed.

We also are looking for funding and supplies for the coming year. We would be happy to talk with you regarding a fundraiser during the summer.

We appreciate any input you may have, and we always welcome those who would like to volunteer to help.

Note to readers: Bonnie Donnell is the coordinator of the Trinity School Supply Closet.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
