Lee’s Summit Social Services will open their store, located at 108 SE 4th St,
from July 28 through August 6 for back to school shopping.
Volunteers for those two weeks are still needed. Six volunteers are needed for each shift. This allows most families to be helped in 15 minutes.
Contact Geneva High (Geneva@lssocialservices.com) or Matt Sanning (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your choice of days.
In addition to volunteers, Lee’s Summit Social Services needs the following items:
Backpack (no wheels, should be large enough for an 11”X 13” folder. Small children -Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade need small backpacks.)
If you choose, pick out 5-10 of any of the items to collect.

Additionally, each child receives tissues and a toothbrush. Last year they ran out, and many more are still needed.
