Weekend Tote Bag Program starting
The Salvation Army at 55 Whittlesey Ave., Norwalk, will be starting a Weekend Tote Bag Program starting in July. This program will provide the children attending The Summer Feeding Program a tote bag each Friday filled with items such as snacks, food items, coloring pages, activities sheets, crayons, and pencils.
The Salvation Army's hope is to provide the children food for the weekend while they are not with us.
Summer is a tough time for our families. The way the program works is that the children are to bring the bags back on Monday and on Friday. Each family in our program will go home with a tote.
To place an item in "Business in Brief," send the information to the Norwalk Reflector, 61 E. Monroe St., Norwalk, Ohio 44857, call (419) 668-3771 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
