Sandwich Area Chamber of Commerce collecting supplies for schoolchildren
SANDWICH – The fourth annual Sandwich Area Chamber of Commerce’s Summer Pack program is underway.
Forty percent of Sandwich school students are at poverty level, according to a news release from the Chamber, which added that summer is especially hard, as families don’t have the schools available for extra support.
Last year, many area businesses and families, along with the schools’ primary parents associations, provided donations toward this program.
Items or monetary donations are needed this year, as well. A list of items and drop-off locations can be found on the Chamber’s website at www.sandwich-il.org. The deadline to donate is Tuesday.
For information, call 815-786-9075.
