Whether students like it or not, the beginning of school is just around the corner. For some families, the excitement of the new school year is heightened by the traditional back-to-school shopping. For others, it's a time of stress and wondering how they'll be able to meet their child's basic needs as they return to the classroom. Marshall Public Library is stepping up to help.
The library has setup a collection point for toiletry items to be donated to the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25 supply pantry. From now until September 17, library staff will accept items like shampoo, soap, lotion, deodorant, towels, washcloths, laundry detergent, and combs for students in need. Every little bit, from a tube of toothpaste to a hair brush, will help a local student on their way to educational success.
New and unopened goods will be accepted at the first floor checkout desk. All items will be donated to the school pantries. If you have any questions about this program, please call Amy Campbell at 232-1263 or visit marshallpl.org
