Project School Supplies donations underway throughout Montgomery County

School SuppliesStudents across the county will soon be preparing to go back to school and will be in need of school supplies and new clothes. This can be a difficult time for parents who are already struggling to keep food on the table, pay their housing, and allow for higher utility bills. Montgomery County Emergency Assistance (MCEA) is offering help for these families.

MCEA is soliciting help from the community for Project School Supplies. Counselors will provide pre-qualified parents with a voucher redeemable for school supplies and clothing from MCEA. With demand so high for this service, community support is critical to the success of the project. Drop off locations have been set up that will take donated school supplies for MCEA.
