A great local charity event conducted by the Liberty Public Schools! Would you please help me spread the word on this? Share with friends, family, Facebook, and Twitter. Details below:

Liberty Public Schools has announced it will collect school supplies from the surrounding community during the month of July and early August to provide for school children in Joplin who endured the tragic tornado in May.

It is the goal of Joplin Schools to have every student in the district a backpack filled with all of the school supplies necessary to be successful in the 2011-2012 school year. LPS has obtained the various lists from Joplin Schools. Community members can simply donate items or can take part in the “Adopt-an-Eagle” program, which would involve buying each item for a student for a particular grade level. This effort began to generate momentum earlier this summer when Liberty North High School Science Teacher Jessica Robinson approached district officials about the possibility of taking part in the program.

“It always takes someone special to get something like this off the ground and Jessica is the person who stepped up big-time,” said LPS Director of Communications Dallas Ackerman. “Many people within our district have asked for the best ways to help the school district in Joplin, and this certainly would be a great way to do it.”

The collections will culminate on the weekend of August 5-6, when an LPS school bus will be parked at two different locations collecting items during the annual tax-free weekend. On Friday, August 5, volunteers will be at the Kansas City/Liberty Office Max store from 4 – 7 p.m., and then on Saturday, August 6, items will be collected at the Kansas City/Liberty Wal-Mart location from 8 a.m. – Noon. Supply lists will be posted in the stores July 1 and drop-off locations will be provided at the respective stores. In addition, anyone wishing to drop off items prior to the August 5-6 weekend, can do so by visiting the LPS District Administration Center, located at 650 Conistor.

Liberty Public Schools plans to drive the school bus and meet Joplin School District Officials during the week of August 8 to deliver items received by the district.
