National Crayon Collection Month Celebration - August 3, 2-6PM

FB Image.jpg

National Crayon Collection Month was designed to make sure every child can be equipped with this vital supply as they start school. The initial concept was to visit places like local restaurants and other establishments that might have broken or used crayons that they would be willing to donate, and gather them as supplies for children in need.

We're expanding on that thought by partnering with Helping Kids - which supports the Sheboygan Falls School District by helping to ensure local kids in our area have all the supplies they need as they head back to school in the fall.

On August 3rd, we're holding a social event in the Community Center of our Haven Drive campus. Everyone is invited to come share refreshments and make donations to benefit Helping Kids. Both supplies and monetary donations will be accepted. (Checks should be made out to "Sheboygan Falls School District Helping Kids".)

Prior to this event, there will be boxes where you can drop off your donations at many participating local organizations - as outlined in the list below. (Please note that this post will be updated as additional organizations come on board, so check back to see if any additional locations have been added that are convenient to you!)
