RUSSELL — The St. John Lutheran Back to School Giveaway Committee is now accepting donations for the upcoming event to be held in August. Gently used and new clothing and shoes will be collected and made available to students from Pre-K through High School.
Monetary donations are also accepted and will be utilized to purchase new socks and undergarments for each student. Any funds remaining will be used to purchase school supplies for middle school and high school students which will be available at the Back to School Giveaway on a first come, first served basis.
Gently used clothing donations may be placed in the box in the basement hallway at St. John Lutheran Church, 425 N. Main, Russell. New socks and undergarments, school supplies and monetary donations will be accepted at the church office Monday through Friday, 8 am to 1:30 pm.
Although all donations are welcome, please donate clothing that is in good shape with no stains or tears. Donations of infant clothing and other goods are not needed for the giveaway, and may be dropped off at the Trinity Community Thrift Store, 214 E. 14th, Russell.
