(City of Pocatello Press Release, August 6, 2021)
If you’re out shopping for school supplies for your student this year, the staff at the Marshall Public Library are hoping you’ll consider picking up a few extra items for students in need.
The staff at the library are collecting general toiletry items and school supplies for the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25 supply pantry. From August 9 through September 11, library staff will be collecting:
Toiletry items School supplies
Soap Notebook Paper
Washcloths Watercolor sets
Feminine hygiene products Markers
Toothbrushes Colored pencils
“Every item donated makes a difference for kids who need just a little extra assistance to succeed in school,” said Amy Campbell, Public Services Supervisor at the Marshall Public Library. “We’re fortunate because people in Pocatello are always generous about helping each other out, and picking up an extra package of pencils or an extra tube of toothpaste is an easy and affordable way for many of us to give.”
“We appreciate the generosity of our community,” said Lori Craney, Director of Elementary Education with Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25. “Some of our learners come to school without the needed school supplies and these donations will help them be prepared for learning in a new school year.”
New and unopened goods will be accepted at the first-floor checkout desk at the library, 113 South Garfield Avenue. Items past their expiration date will not be accepted.
The Marshall Public Library is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided with three (3) days’ advance notice by contacting Skyler Beebe at email@example.com; 208.234.6248 or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
