School Kits

School supplies are on sale, a good time to purchase items to share with others in Elk River, to fill bags that will go to other countries and for shoe boxes or shoe bags for Mission Mexico later in the year.

About 100 drawstring backpacks are waiting to be filled with the following supplies: 70-sheet 8” x 10½” notebooks; 30-centimeter rulers, or rulers with inches on one side and centimeters on the other; pencil sharpeners; blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades); #2 pencils with erasers; black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink); boxes of 16 or 24 crayons; and a 2½” eraser.

Local students may need other supplies such as backpacks, calculators and Kleenex. Lists are available at most places where school supplies are purchased.
