It’s that time of year when some of our local nonprofits are in need of school supplies to distribute to their client families in need.

Salvation Army – Donation tags are available at the Salvation Army office. Those interested in donating can pick up a tag to “adopt” a child and decide if they want to donate school supplies or clothing items. People can also donate without picking up a tag. While the program accepts all school supplies, Davis encourages people to donate pencil cases, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer, sheet protectors, Kleenex, and backpacks, especially high school backpacks. For more information, call 229-6651.
