Communities In Schools of Auburn organizes Back to School Supply Drive

The annual Communities In Schools of Auburn Back to School Supply Drive has started and will continue through August.

New this year is the Stuff the Bus event at AuburnFest on Saturday, Aug. 12, in Les Gove Park, 910 Ninth St. SE, Auburn.

Arlene Pierini, CISA executive director, said the organization is hoping to help more than 1,500 students in need throughout the Auburn School District.

“The need is vast and includes all grade levels,” Pierini said. “Any and all traditional back to school supplies such as backpacks, colored pencils and binders are appreciated, she says.”

Donations may be taken to any of the following Auburn locations in August: Orion Industries; all Auburn State Farm locations; City Hall Annex; Head and Malesis Insurance; Heritage Bank; Farmers Insurance on Main Street; Price-Helton Funeral Home; KeyBank; Wesley Homes; Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce; Edward Jones – Greg Dobbs; Family of Grace Church; the Auburn School District Fugate Administration Building and Administrative Annex.
