Needs Council to host two school supply drives

The Hill Country Community Needs Council will be hosting a pair of school supply drives from 4-7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 2, at H-E-B and again from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at Wal-Mart.

Last year, the Needs Council helped 420 Gillespie County students with school supplies.

Each drive will be staffed with volunteers handing out lists of needed supplies and they will be ready to receive the supplies donated.

Woodforest National Bank inside Wal-Mart will have a donation box for school supplies through Friday, Aug. 9. Donations can also be dropped off at the Needs Council office, located at 209 South Acorn.

Families needing assistance with school supplies can come by the office and sign up through noon on Friday, Aug. 2.

The Needs Council is also seeking volunteers to help during the week of Aug. 12-17 in preparation for supply distribution from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 17.

Hair stylists and barbers are needed to volunteer for one hour on Saturday, Aug. 17 to give haircuts to school children.
