Kankakee Valley REMC's eighth annual "Pack-a-Backpack" drive is going on now until July 31.
As part of KV REMC's focus on community, we can't overlook the opportunity to help students 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 KV REMC headquarters along Highway 30 in Wanatah. While the lobby is not open at this time, the collection box can be found outside the lobby doors.
Your donation will help bring a smile to a student's face as they start another exciting year of school.
