Back to school supply drive


Hope for Marshall County, a local food pantry that is more than just a food pantry, is holding a back to school supply drive. Even though back to school drives typically collect pens, paper, backpacks and the like, this drive is a tad different.

Because the pandemic has completely changed what anybody considers typical, this back to school drive will focus on safety and precautionary items like masks (paper or fabric), hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes.

The collected items will go to families who have felt the impact of the pandemic, and teachers who request the items for their classrooms.

Any donated items can be dropped off at the Hope for Marshall County Pantry at 19123 Elizabeth Blvd, Oakland or the Marshall County Home Health Office located at 112 S 1st St #278, Madill.

The supply drive will end August 15, 2020. For anybody wishing to make a monetary donation, they can do so through PayPal at
