Fill the Truck 2 Saturday

The Shelton School District is pleased to partner with Graduation Matters Shelton and community organizers to support the #FilltheTruck2 event. This event will collect items for students within the Shelton School District as well as throughout Mason County.

Currently, well over 300 Shelton School District students and in excess of 400 students countywide are considered homeless. Community organizers feel it is important to give back to those within our reach. Student needs include school supplies, socks, underwear, shoes, warm clothing, bedding and hygiene supplies. “When the basic needs of the students are met, they can focus on their education. We are excited to help provide this for the kids in our community,” commented community organizer, Dawn Myers.

The #Fillthetruck2 donation event will be held Saturday, January 21, 2017. Drop off locations will be at the Fred Meyer and Wal-Mart parking lots from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., where donations of food, clothes, school supplies, bedding and hygiene products will gladly be accepted. Following the collection of donations, there will be a celebration event held at the Shelton High School stadium at 5 p.m.
