TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Now that the collecting for the Salvation Army and WLFI's "Tools for School" drive has finished, it's time to distribute school supplies to area children in Tippecanoe and Benton counties.
Distribution day is Saturday, August 10 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Lafayette Adult Resource Academy on Elizabeth Street. Participants should bring with them a picture I.D., social security cards for each household member, and proof of family income.
Even though the drive officially ended August 2, Major Jim Irvine of the Salvation Army says paper products are still a greatly needed item. Volunteer help is also needed on distribution day. Those interested can contact The Salvation Army at 765-742-0006.
