A group of residents decided to get together and spend the day trying to collect school supplies and donations for homeless children who currently stay at the Salvation Army ready for the upcoming school year. All day long, several volunteers along with one local girl scout troop were out at one local coffee shop collecting everything from school supplies, shoes, clothes, and money.

The hope is that by holding a donation event like this, it will encourage the students who will receive the donations go to school and be successful. In case you missed out today, you can still donate school supplies to children at the Salvation Army.
