Nelson’s Sally Ann looks to ease back to school pressures

The beginning of a new school year is always a stressful time for families struggling to make ends meet.

The beginning of a new school year is always a stressful time for families struggling to make ends meet.

To help relieve some of that stress, Nelson’s Salvation Army is asking for help in providing school supplies. They  are looking for pencils, pens, crayons, pencil crayons, scissors, binders, scribblers, dividers, glue sticks, rulers, felt pens, duotangs, lined loose leaf, erasers, highlighters and other items that will help make the school year successful for all children.

The Salvation Army is very simply requesting that when you are picking up supplies for your child, you might pick up something extra to drop in one of the collection boxes placed around town. Or you can drop your donation off at the Salvation Army at 601 Vernon Street.
