The community’s help is needed today to help provide some 600 school children with much-needed school supplies.

Today and Saturday, Bethany Baptist Church members and community members will gather at Harold’s Discount Furniture to collect school supplies and monetary donations to try and “pack the bus.”

General school supplies are needed such as folders, paper, rulers, crayons, glue sticks, etc.

Donations will be collected today from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

School supplies will be donated to children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.
