School Supplies Donations Needed!

Students and staff at Pleasant Hill Elementary are showing their THANKfulness by GIVING back to a community in need.
The students and staff at Pleasant Hill Elementary are collecting school supplies, books and board games for students in the Washington, IL school districts. This town was devastated by the recent fall tornadoes. Following a tragedy like this, children need to get back to a somewhat normal schedule and routine in order to feel safe and secure. The most routine thing in their life right now is attending school. Many students are without the basic needs to attend school.
The need was brought to the attention of students and staff after Mrs. Hannel shared the need she learned of from a blog she follows written by a teacher in the area. Mrs. Hannel shared this need with her class and the students in her building and it grew to include the entire elementary school and the community.
If you would like to help by donating school supplies: pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, backpacks, pencil boxes, games, books ects., you make take the items to Bank of Kampsville (Pleasant Hill), Central State Bank (Pleasant Hill), Pleasant Hill Elementary School, United Community Bank (Pittsfield), Save-A-Lot (Pittsfield), or WBBA (Pittsfield). Items are greatly appreciated and will be collected through Dec. 13th.
