Members of Star Church in Eldorado have organized an effort to collect backpacks and school supplies to be distributed to families who are in need.
This is the third year for this program and it has been very successful in helping families get their children prepared for school. However, in hopes of helping as many as possible, they would ask each family to please contact the church at (618)273-3226 or e-mail at email@example.com and pre-register each child. They need child's name, grade, gender and school attending.
The Star Church group will then be at the Town & Country Stage area in Eldorado beginning at 6 p.m. on Aug. 7 to distribute the school supplies to the families. They would like to reach out to those families who have children in need of school supplies, but who do not have funds to purchase them.
Those who would like to take advantage of the program may contact Star Church so they can prepare for each child's needs and then come to downtown Eldorado at 6 p.m. on Aug. 7, to the Town & Country Stage where the supplies will be distributed.
Members of the Star Church will be on hand to assist.
