Every year since 2002, The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit has offered a school supply assistance program (Tools for School) in August. This year the program served 409 Ottawa County students with school supplies and a new backpack.
Since this program was funded by donations, the success was due to our local residents, businesses and organizations that donated funds such as: Walmart Port Clinton, Fireland’s Presbyterian Church, Catawba Moorings, St. John Lutheran, Marblehead KOC, St. Joe’s Marblehead, Trinity Lutheran Elmore, Trinity United Methodist, Peace Lutheran Church, Education Department, Davis Besse and Ottawa County Republican Women’s Club along with our anonymous community donations.
A huge thank you to the Port Clinton School District for donating the bus for Stuff The Bus. Thank you for all who contributed funds, supplies, and volunteer hours to this program.
The Salvation Army could not continue to help our children without community support. For more information, call the Salvation Army at 419-732-2769 and Director Maureen Saponari.
