In an effort to help local children begin school this fall with necessary supplies, the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul are asking for donations to their back-to-school campaign.
Donations are needed to help provide school supplies to more than 400 children in Wasco, Sherman, Hood River and Klickitat counties. Supplies, including backpacks, will be handed out to qualified students Aug. 28.
Donations of $25 or more will help a local child start the new school year on the right track.
Both St. Vincent and Salvation Army are accepting donations.
Send checks made out to the Salvation Army to PO Box 1970, The Dalles, OR 97058.
Send checks made out to St. Vincent de Paul to PO Box 533, The Dalles, OR 97058.
Donations of school supplies will also be accepted at both locations.
For more information, call St. Vincent de Paul at 541-296-9566 or Salvation Army at 541-296-6417.
