GRAND FORKS — If you need help giving your child school supplies the Grand Forks Salvation Army is stocked.
The charity's Grand Forks office, 1600 University Ave., is open for parents to sign up for back-to-school supplies until Wednesday, July 17. Children will get a backpack filled with pencils, crayons and paper for the school year.
All parents or guardians need to do is bring a photo ID, a piece of mail, proof of income and verification that their children live with them.
“Many of our students might not have the school supplies like the other kiddos might have,” said case manager Darcy Solem. “It's just nice to have them come prepared for that first day of school just like everybody else.”
Signups are between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. daily. Sign up is from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. next Wednesday.
