Parents are celebrating the return of their freedom with the first day of school less than a month away. Tis the season for backpacks, crayons and folders.
Not every family is able to afford all the supplies their children will need this back-to-school season. To help families in need in our area Champlain Centre is proud to be hosting the WPTZ/NBC 5 “Stuff the Bus” supply drive. The drive will take place on Thursday, August 18th, in front of Target’s interior mall entrance, near the food court. Donations of new school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, backpacks, crayons, folders, lunch boxes, and more will be accepted. The JCEO will make sure the supplies get to kids in need in our community so they can start the new school year off right.
There’s still time for customers shopping for school supplies to enter Champlain Centre’s $500 Back-to-School Shopping Spree as well. More details on the contest can be found at champlaincentre.com.
