WARSAW – Combined Community Services (CCS) will hold its annual Tools for School event at the Kosciusko County Fairgrounds on Wednesday, Aug. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year’s event will look slightly different as it will be a drive-thru style and will be first-come, first-served, as some items may be limited this year, according to a news release from CCS.
Tools for School helps prepare Kosciusko County K-12 students in need for the upcoming year by providing some of the essential school supplies. Information on additional resources and assistance agencies will be included in the bags of supplies to help foster positive community connections.
CCS is accepting financial donations as well as school supplies. Some items given out are book bags, pencils, pens, lined paper, notebooks, folders, glue, rulers, colored pencils, and crayons. Donations can be dropped off at CCS, located at 1195 Mariners Drive, Warsaw, IN 46582, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., by Aug. 4.
