Write Stuff for Kids of DeWitt County will be setting young school kids up with school supplies next month.
Monday morning on the WHOW Morning Show, Edith Brady-Lunny and Kathleen Frick told Regional Radio News that process is underway. Frick says applications for this year's distribution are underway. Brady-Lunny adds they are accepting donations at Bryce Starkey Edward Jones agent on the north side of the Clinton Square.
Brady-Lunny says as the new school year approaches, they could really use donations of backpacks. She says they are sometimes more costly and bulky to purchase.
Write Stuff is not just limited to school children in Clinton. Brady-Lunny says they have been distributing supplies to students in Farmer City and DeLand-Weldon. Frick notes, in Clinton, those applications can be found online or at the DeWitt County Housing Authority.
Distribution this year is set for Saturday, August 10 from 8 am to noon at Clinton Junior High School. For more information, you can reach out to Frick on Facebook via the group's Facebook page. Or you can call her at 217-935-9637.
