The Huron Township Department of Public Safety is partnering with Huron School District, Summit Academy Schools, Huron Township Rotary, and Huron Township Goodfellows to collect new school supplies and clothing for the upcoming school year.
“Even as an adult, I still remember the feeling of going to the first day of school with my new clothes, backpack, and school supplies. Unfortunately, some kids who go to school in our community never get to experience that feeling. My favorite part of this job is having a platform to help kids in my community that can use it,” said Everette Robbins, director of public safety.
Donations can be dropped off at the Huron Township Police Department, 36500 S. Huron Road in New Boston, staring at 9 a.m. on Aug. 17 and ending at 4 p.m. on Aug. 30.
Daily donations can be dropped off between those dates anytime from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
“I have seen first-hand the generosity of this community, especially when it comes to our children through the shop with a hero Christmas Program. I am hoping that we can all come together to stuff the busses. All of the collected items will be given to kids who show up the first week of school without the things they need. I am excited to see what this community can do,” Robbins said.
“I want to thank our community partners for the support. We got immediate support from Superintendent Rowe and Superintendent Hedke and they were as excited about this initiative as we were. The busses are here, and we are ready to go.”
