•  School Supplies ~ ongoing  
  Children’s Underwear ~ ongoing
Elementary schools need children’s underwear in sizes 6, 8, and 10. Accidents can occur and when children are unable to change underwear, they are embarrassed. School nurses and children thank you.

Food for the Needy ~ ongoing
The local food pantries are in desperate need of food to help families in need. Please bring non perishable food items — especially items that can be micro- waved without refrigeration. Checks are always welcome!!

Eyeglasses, cell phones and Toiletries ~ ongoing
The Board received a request from several organizations for eyeglasses, cell phones and toiletries.
