It would mark the fifth year for the give-away, but this years funding is way down and may threaten the amount of help available to area students. The event is sponsored by Lewis Coun- ty Churches, businesses and individuals. The need to help Lewis County students is espe- cially great this year, with many parents experienc- ing layoffs or job losses. Not having to worry about affording school supplies would come as a great re- lief to many in our local communities. Last year 504 area school children were served through this effort. A staggering num- ber a year ago, in not yet so tough times. This event is open to Lewis County students only, including home- schoolers K through 6th grade. Basic supplies for 7-12 graders is also avail- able, even though they do not receive supply lists. The School Supply give-away event is sched- uled for July 25, from 10:00 aan. until 1:00 p.m. at the LaGrange Youth Center. Any financial help is greatly appreciated.
