The summer is going by fast and it will soon be time for school again. The start of school can be an exciting time, but it can also be a financially stressful time for many families in our community. To help ease the financial burden, local churches will be putting together an Adopt a Student school supply drive.
If you need supplies for your children, there will be an open house from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at the First Baptist Church, 24 S. Walnut St. in Colfax. You can come during that time to get the supplies that you need.
If you would like to help provide items for students by making a donation, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Jessica Williams at 515-975-1720 or Mandy Houseman at 515-661-2045.
