The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit has offered a school supply assistance program (Tools for School) in August every year since 2002. This year the program served 356 Ottawa County students with school supplies and a new backpack.
Since this program was funded by donations, the success was due to local residents, businesses and organizations that donated funds. This year’s leaders were: Fireland’s Presbyterian Church, Catawba Moorings, St. John Lutheran, Debbie Hymore-Tester-CG Salon, Trinity Lutheran – Elmore, Firelands Counseling & Recovery, Trinity United Methodist, Peace Lutheran Church, Education Department, Davis Bessie, Ottawa County Republican Women’s Club along with our anonymous Community donations.
A huge thank you to the Port Clinton City School district for donating its big, yellow school bus for the “Stuff The Bus” promotion.
The Salvation Army workers and officials thank everyone who contributed funds, supplies, and volunteer hours to this program. The Salvation Army could not continue to help our children without your support.
For further questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at 419-732-2769 and speak with Director Maureen Saponari.
