Kankakee Valley REMC's fifth annual "Pack-a-Backpack" drive is going on now until August 1.
As part of KV REMC's focus on community, we can't overlook the opportunity to help student's whose families might be struggling with the start-of-the-year school supply purchases. Last year we gave over 150 backpacks away to area elementary and middle schools. This year we want to do even more.
To do this, we need your support in donating school supplies and backpacks. These items will then be delivered to schools before the start of the school year to hand out to children in need. Supplies we will be collecting this year include backpacks, crayons, colored pencils, #2 pencils, glue sticks, glue, rulers, school boxes, to name just a few. For a complete list of supplies, download that supply list here. Supplies can be dropped off at the following locations: Kankakee Valley REMC headquarters in Wanatah, LaCrosse Public Library, Wanatah Public Library, and Kouts Public Library.
Your donation will help bring a smile to a student's face as they start another exciting year of school.
