Girl Scouts collecting school supplies

FULTON — Southwest’s Girl Scout Troop 443 is collecting school supplies for low-income families at the Central Community Housing Trust in Elliot Park.

They request donations of any school supplies for grades K–12, including pencils, ballpoint pens, spiral notebooks, art supplies and three-ring binders. The supplies will go to school age children at the non-profit apartment and town home complex.

Donated supplies can be dropped off at Lake Harriet Community School’s upper campus, 4912 Vincent Ave. S., or lower campus, 4030 Chowen Ave. S. Drop-off boxes will be placed outside the school offices at both locations. Donations are welcome through Sept. 14.

The girls in Troop 443 include students from Lake Harriet Community School, Talmud Torah in St. Paul and Hillcrest Community School in Bloomington.
