A dozen local organizations have announced a community-wide school supply drive, which runs through August 8. Supplies collected during the drive will be distributed to area students who are in need of materials to start the school year. Many area businesses, including major retailers such as Al’s Supermarkets, have set up collection bins to accept donations from their employees and the general public. Additional collection sites are located at The Beacher, Captain Ed’s Candy Island & Furniture Showroom, First Trust Credit Union, Life Care Center of Michigan City, the MCAS Administration Building, Members Advantage Credit Union, Michigan City’s City Hall, and St. John’s United Church. Distribution of the supplies will take place during a Citywide Back-to-School Rally on Thursday, August 10 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Elston’s Gill Field. Volunteers are needed on August 8 and 9 to assist in sorting school supplies and on August 10 for the Back-to-School Rally.
