Crittenden Students Won't Have to Buy Supplies
By West Kentucky Star Staff
CRITTENDEN COUNTY - Crittenden County students and parents will have one less thing to worry about as kids head back to school on August 14. 

The school district announced in a news release Monday that several local churches and businesses have teamed up to purchase school supplies for all students in grades Pre-K through 12th grade, excluding backpacks.

Family Resource and Youth Services Coordinator Crystal Wesmoland said the partnership is helping meet a need many local families have, as well as make things easier for students and teachers.

“We know that school supply shopping can be a costly event,” Wesmoland said, “especially in families with multiple students enrolled in our schools. By removing that obstacle, parents are able to focus on other needs and work with their children to prepare them for success.”

The following organizations helped purchase the supplies: Crittenden County Farm Bureau, Sugar Grove CP Church, Marion Baptist Church, Mexico Baptist Church, Rebecca Johnson Law Office, Marion United Methodist Church, Life in Christ Church, Glenn’s Apothecary, Cave Springs General Baptist Church, Farmers Bank, First United Bank, Deer Creek Baptist Church, Par-4 Plastics, Heart to Heart Center, Walnut Grove Baptist Church, Caldwell Springs Baptist Church, and YTG Insurance.

Anyone wishing to donate or assist with the initiative may contact Wesmoland at 270-965-3525.
