The Waxahachie Lions Club has joined with the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Waxahachie to host a “Back-2-School Supply Drive” 1-4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 12 and 13 at the Salvation Army, 620 Farley St.

Members of the Waxahachie Lions Club will be present each day to assist with the drive-thru operation so that donors can stay socially distanced and never even have to leave their vehicle to make a donation. Suggested supplies include:

• Crayons (24 count)

• Markers

• Spiral notebooks

• Glue bottles

• Glue sticks

• Colored pencils

• Pencils boxes

• Erasers

• Pencils

• Scissors

• Gallon Ziploc bags

• Sandwich Ziploc bags

• Construction paper

• Tissue paper

• Headphones with cord

• Hand sanitizer

For those who would like to make a financial donation instead of purchasing supplies, checks can be made payable to “Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Waxahachie” with “Back-2-School” in the memo, or donations can be made digitally thru Venmo at WaxahachieLions-Foundation.

In addition to donations made by the community and individual club members at this event, the Waxahachie Lions Club will make a $500 contribution to show its support.
