It’s August! That means, we still get to reap the benefits of summer but we know fall is just around the corner. It’s also back-to-school time, so parents and their school-aged kids start flocking to stores to pick out #2 pencils, backpacks and folders.
Ahh, can’t you just smell the new school supplies now? We will take a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, please.
The beginning of the school year is an exciting one for kids, but if you’re a parent struggling to make ends meet, back-to-school means extra expenses and extra worry. Luckily, resources like Waukee Area Christian Services exist to assist families who are in need of a little help this time of year.
Our fabulous community involvement team presented PMG with the opportunity to lighten the load on area parents’ shoulders by getting involved with Waukee Area Christian Services Back-to-School Supply Drive! (Say that five times fast.) We can never pass up the opportunity to go shopping, especially when it’s for a good cause. So, we got to work.
In the end, we were able to donate 648 school supplies. We’re pretty proud of the effort our team put in.
By the way, if you feel like helping out our friends at Waukee Area Christian Services, they’re always looking for volunteers and donations. Learn more here!
