It’s time for the children to gather up their gear and head back to school. Pens, pencils, pocket protectors for the trendy, notebook paper, notebooks in which to entrap the paper, and all manner of little niceties are needed for all sorts of children, some of whom need help to obtain the necessaries.

The Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual back to school drive, to address the need of students who are availing themselves of our fine education system, but, who are a little lacking in the funds necessary to have the materials by which to best write down their well thought out answers. Supplies are being collected to hand out to local school children in the Copper Basin area.

Mark Ramos, manager of the Bank of the West in Kearny, got the ball rolling with a large donation of school supplies. He’s banking on the hope that other folks in the Copper Basin will follow his lead and make their donations as well.

Anyone interested in contributing may drop off their donations at Town of Hayden and Winkelman, Bank of the West, Gordon’s IGA and the Chamber office. Monetary donations will also be accepted and appreciated. Please contact the Chamber at 520- 363-7607 or angela@copperbasinaz.com.

Supplies will be available on August 2, starting at 11 a.m., on a first come first serve basis.
