CROWN POINT - Second Blessings thrift shop is asking for assistance.
The shop, located on the corner of Creek Road and NYS Route 9N and run by volunteers, is seeking school supplies for area students.
"Beginning immediately, Second Blessings will receive necessary school items for local children," Pastor David Hirtle of the Crown Point Congregational Church said. "Realizing that there are many families in our community who are unable to purchase items necessary for their children to begin school, Second Blessings will accept donations during the next three weeks."
All items donated will be given to Crown Point Central School for distribution to children unable to provide their own: 12 and 24-boxes of crayons, glue sticks, pocket folders, small drink cups, tissues, standard plastic pencil boxes, #2 pencils, assorted colored pencils, pencil cap erasers, loose leaf paper, composition notebooks, highlighters, gallon-size zip-lock bags and book bags to hold books, shies and extra clothes.
"The items are considered essential for school year start-up," Hirtle said. "Please, if you can find it in your hearts to help a child get a positive start for the school year, bring your donations to Second Blessings on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays during the next few weeks.
Second Blessings is a donation based, non-profit ministry. For additional information contact Hirtle at 597-3398.
