Pack the Bus School Supply Drive on Friday, Aug. 12, at CANHelp

Every August, hundreds of students in the Hopkins County area begin their first day of school without the school supplies they need in order to have a successful school year!  CANHelp is offering two ways to help these students: 1) Host a school supply drive at your church or organization.  Ask your associates to help in this school supply drive.  2) If you would just like to donate supplies, you may bring them to the parking lot of CANHelp on Thursday, August 12 from 9-4.  Their goal this year is to give 500 students the supplies they need.  For more information, please call Kim McCormack at 903-885-9797, ext. 4.
