Love INC seeks supplies, clothes for area families

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Love In the Name of Christ of the Yampa Valley (Love INC) is hosting collections for school supplies, classroom supplies and clothes for those in need this back-to-school season.

Project School Supply is a program that collects school supplies and new backpacks for underprivileged children in the area.

The program, coordinated in partnership with the Craig Rotary Club, provides children with new backpacks filled with supplies.

Those who are willing to donate can either collect items on the donation list and deliver it to one of the drop-off locations, or donate $25 to provide one child with his or her needed supplies.

Love INC, in partnership with Calvary Baptist Church, is leading the Clothes for Kids collection, which supplies area children in need with new sets of clothing and shoes, and is asking for community donations to the program.

Those who wish to sponsor a child will be provided with the first name, gender, sizes and age of the child, for whom they will shop for two sets of clothing.

Those who wish to help but not shop can donate $65 to supply a child with a pair of shoes, two pairs of socks, two pairs of pants and two new shirts.
