Hoosick Area Churches Seeking Items for ‘Back-2-School Boost’
For the ninth year, the Hoosick Area Church Association will be collecting school supplies for ‘Back 2 School Boost.’ Sign-up sheets are available at the HACA Food Pantry, 26 John Street, as well as all HACA churches, Hoosick Falls Central School and Saint Mary’s Academy. Requests will be filled after August 1 as they are received, in order that families can plan for any special back to school needs. Supplies can be left at any HACA Church, the Food Pantry Cart in Tops Market, Thorpe’s Pharmacy or Hoosick Federal Credit Union. Suggested items include: backpacks, crayons, erasers, glue, index cards, highlighters, markers, notebooks, loose leaf paper, tab dividers, three-ring binders, pens, pencils, rulers and pencil boxes. Monetary contributions are appreciated as they enable us to purchase backpacks and other specifically-needed items. A donation of $20 provides a fully-stocked, age-appropriate back pack. Contributions may be sent to HACA, Post Office Box 1, Hoosick Falls, N.Y. 12090.
