MKC is hosting a school supply drive for schools across their footprint.

Jul 08, 2021
As summer is quickly wrapping up for students, back-to-school shopping creeps into everyone's minds. mkc.pngUnfortunately for some families in our footprint, purchasing supplies comes with a financial burden.
To help relieve that burden for families in local communities is why MKC is stepping in and helping others in need. This year, MKC is hosting a school supply drive for schools across their footprint.
Staff Accountant Holly Herman said, "As a committee, we decided on a school supply drive because many families in our footprint struggle with school costs and purchasing supplies for their children."
Starting July 5, MKC is partnering with surrounding schools to provide local families in need with back-to-school supplies. Each list for high school, junior high and grade school is tailored to specific needs for each age group. Items being collected include but are not limited to: backpacks, notebooks, binders, calculators, folders, lined paper, pencils, pens, sharpies, crayons, markers, highlighters, glue sticks, tape, paper clips, hand sanitizer, tissues as well as gift cards and cash. The supply drive will run starting July 5 through July 30.
When stopping in at MKC locations, be on the lookout for donation tin cans as well as flyers containing lists for the participating school(s). Monetary and gift card donations are acceptable and very much appreciated.
"At MKC, we are focused on "Shared growth. Shared success." so if we, as a company and community, can help children succeed by donating much-needed supplies, then we will be making a difference in the communities we live and work in. Due to COVID-19, we weren't able to host the School Supply Drive last year, so we're hopeful our employees and customers will be able to provide for the schools in our footprint," Herman said.
