As Summer comes to an end, the 2020 / 20221 school is quickly approaching

As sad as it is to see Summer ending, I'm excited and hopeful that kids will have a semi-normal upcoming school year. What is not so exciting is the long list of school supplies that need to be purchased.

There is nothing better than watching several local businesses and communities are coming together to lighten the financial burden that the ongoing pandemic has continued to feed.

According to a Facebook post made by Waterville Elks Lodge #905 is hosting their 2nd annual Tools to Thrive Backpack School Supply drive-thru event. The Drive-thru event is happening at the Waterville Elks Lodge 76 Industrial Rd in Waterville on Sunday, August 15th, from 1 to 3 pm. Each child will receive a backpack filled with the tools they need to thrive in school.

Families are encouraged to show up but are asked to remain in their cars, and a volunteer will direct you to the location based on the child's age. Children receiving supplies MUST be present.
