Community requests school donations

The Prospect Red Bay Community Group is sponsoring a back-to-school drive to assist the children and schools of that community in ensuring they have the supplies for a successful start of the school year.

Community members are encouraged to donate school supplies and materials. A list of items, ranging from crayons to dictionaries, can be found at the community group’s Facebook page.

Lysol spray, wipes and hand sanitiser are also being accepted. The Ministry of Education provides composition books.

A donation box is located at Seafarers Hall. Items can be dropped off between 7am and 3pm weekdays. Executive members of the group can be contacted to arrange collection or drop off of donations, which can also be brought to the next monthly meeting at 7pm, 2 Sept. at Seafarers Hall.

Collected items will be sorted and shared between the two schools. Teachers will distribute the items to those kids who require assistance.
