This is from Country Dale but I’m sure they will appreciate help from other schools too!
The Country Dale students and staff want to help out Mitchell Elementary and Middle School in Racine that suffered a devastating fire last Thursday. We are asking for you to open your hearts and give what you can to help these Racine teachers and students as they try to get back to normal.
Country Dale is asking for donations of school supplies (see wish list), gently used books, and winter gear for the kids who lost mittens, hats etc. You could also send in gift cards or cash if you want to donate but don’t have the time to shop. If you are uncomfortable donating cash, you can make checks payable to “Mitchell School PTA” with “Fire Fund” on the memo line.
The Racine Fire Department is asking the community for these school supplies:
Pens, pencils, markers, and colored pencils
Notebooks and folders
Various sizes of notebook binders, and loose-leaf paper for the binders
Scissors, white glue and gluesticks
Easel sized Post-It notepads
Gift cards to be used to purchase classroom supplies (Suggestion: Target, Wal-Mart, Office Depot and Office Max might help them the most)
Thank you for any and all help! It is very, very much appreciated.
