Want to help local students who face overwhelming odds even before entering the classroom? Here are three easy ways that you can:
(+) The Collinsville Connection will, once again, be collecting School Supplies for the students of Kreitner Elementary School. We invite you, your family, and your friends to stop by our "Donation Station" and drop-off any new School Supplies that you can help out with. (Pencils, pens, crayons, markers, colored pencils, highlighters, notebooks, folders, glue sticks, glue bottles, scissors, backpacks and lunch boxes are just a few examples.) You can find our "Donation Station" at the following upcoming events: the remaining "Movies on Main" Free Outdoor Movie Nights, the upcoming "First Day" event at The Gateway Center, and at the not-so-distant "Tunes at Blum" Free Summer Concert Series at The Blum House.
(+) The Collinsville Jaycees are hosting a Mini Golf Scramble at Gateway Fun Park on July 31st, from 6-8pm. The Jaycees invite you to putt your way to making a difference, as all proceeds will go toward purchasing School Supplies for children in the Collinsville School District. Admission to participate in the event is $10.
(+) From now through August 7th, FCB Collinsville Bank is hosting a School Supply Drive. Donations are accepted in the lobby and will be given to Helping Hands Ministries - (formerly Collinsville Area Ministerial Association). Even just $5 worth of School Supplies helps out drastically and can make a huge difference.
If there's anything that we forgot (or to promote something that your group or business is doing), feel free to post something on our Wall! Your input is always appreciated.
