Still time to donate to school supply drive
Less than two weeks are left to help hundreds of Marysville, Lakewood and Tulalip students get the school supplies they need for the upcoming school year. Donations are being accepted through Aug. 9 to help the area’s most at-risk youth.
All school supplies are needed including headphones, notebook paper, markers, pencils, erasers and more. Donations can be dropped off at designated locations throughout the area. Volunteers will also be collecting supplies Saturday, Aug. 3, in front of Walmart at 8924 Quil Ceda Boulevard from 8:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.
“There are so many kids who need our help,” said Jenny Roodzant, Social Service Coordinator for the Salvation Army. “We are just asking everyone to do what you can. Every donation, big or small, makes a difference.”
