W.O.W. in need of school supplies and donations

| July 29, 2013

COSHOCTON – W.O.W. It’s hard to believe but school is just around the corner….and   it is time again for the Women of Witness Helping Hands School Supply Drive. School is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Aug. 21 for city and county students. Women of Witness Coshocton is now accepting school supplies or donations to help us purchase supplies to assist families in preparing their children for back to school.

We will take calls from families who need school supplies until Wednesday, Aug. 14. The bags with supplies will be distributed at The Gathering-Back to School Bash from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Kids America on Otsego Avenue. Families who need assistance with back to school supplies can call the WOW office at 622-3797 and leave the child’s name, grade, school and a contact name and phone number.

WOW Coshocton had an opportunity this year to purchase drawstring bags at a greatly reduced price and so we are not in need of book bags. We were also the recipient of a generous donation of number two pencils and packets of index cards for all the bags we will be packing. We are anticipating a greater need this year for book bags with supplies and are making an appeal to our the community to help us out with supplies or a donation to purchase supplies.

Families are invited to attend The Gathering and enjoy music, food, games and activities and pick up your child’s school supply bag. If you have any questions about supply bag pickup feel free to contact the office at 622-3797.
