July 18 - August 8

What: 

We are gearing up for our biggest collection drive of the year - School Supplies! Last drive we were able to send a box full of supplies to every public school elementary (grade 1-3) in Muskegon County. These supplies helped fill classrooms, went to students in need, and supported the learning environment needed for our students to succeed. In Oceana, all school supplies collected in Oceana locations were delivered to Hart Public Schools, and in Newaygo County, all school supplies collected at the Eye Care One in Fremont went to Fremont Public Schools! 

This year, we are shaking things up and asking for teacher nominations from our classrooms! Teachers will be determined and selected by a volunteer committee! Make sure you submit your favorite teacher for a chance to have their classroom stocked for the school year! 

This drive is important to our community because it supports our youth by providing them the tools necessary to receive a high-quality education, and relieves the stress of back to school shopping for our struggling families. Did you know that in America, the average family spends $638 per child in back to school shopping?
 
Locally, that is close to our average mortgage rate. That means if a family is struggling to make ends meet, back to school shopping can cause a serious dilemma. Last year, we were able to help our schools and our families with an approximate of $20,000 worth of school supplies going to our children and teachers.
