Volunteers from the Canadian County Democrats will distribute free school supplies from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 10, at the Lord’s Harvest food bank, 1020 Sunset Drive, El Reno. Students from all over the county are eligible to get supplies.
Sponsors from the community are needed to help double the amount of school supplies distributed this year. Individuals who want to help and business owners who have ink pens, pencils or other supplies imprinted with their company name are encouraged to donate items for distribution.
The supplies will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. In past years, all the school supplies were gone in less than one hour.
“This is the seventh year the Canadian County Democrats have provided school supplies for kids in our community,” County Chair Jody Harlan said. “Donations are needed because we want to help twice as many students as previous years.”
The Canadian County Democrats will also register all voters no matter what political parties as part of the school supply giveaway.
