For many parents and children, the thought of going back to school in the fall is not a pleasant one. Many dread the return because of the pressure of not having all the required school supplies that are on the list. Common Cup Ministry and the Salvation Army would like to make going back to school easier.
The goal for the Back to School Drive is to assure that all children in need, living in McLeod County, will return to school this fall with the basic supplies needed for the school year.
The Salvation Army has purchased 400 backpacks. We are so thankful for their participation in the drive.
