HCCS provides school supplies to families in need. This includes things like pens, pencils, paper, folders, and art supplies. It may also include backpacks or calculators.
The majority of what we have available comes from Stuff the Bus. One day per year in the summer, HCCS partners with the United Way of Crawford County for a school supply drive for Harrison and Crawford County. Stuff the Bus sets up outside of Walmart, and shoppers are encouraged to buy new school supplies for children who would otherwise not be prepared for the upcoming school year. Half of what is donated goes to each county, and Harrison County's is distributed here at HCCS.
Distribution at HCCS is generally coordinated to begin the same day as the Salvation Army's school clothing drive, and what is left is made available throughout the school year (while supplies last) and given out on a case by case basis.
Keep a look out for times and dates on our website and Facebook. This year HCCS will not be operating with extended hours. School supply distribution will begin on Monday, July 18 during normal office hours and continue daily.
