Prairie Winds of Urbana – a BMA affordable assisted living community – is hosting a school supply drive for Thomas Paine Elementary School students. The drive will take place from Aug. 12 to Aug. 16.

The community, which is located at 1905 S. Prairie Winds Dr. in Urbana, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

Prairie Winds has a special relationship with Thomas Paine students. Each year, second and fourth grade students walk to Prairie Winds to enjoy a fun activity and snack with residents. Last year, the community hosted a spelling for students and residents. The community has made May baskets, decorated Thanksgiving cookies, attended special programs at the building and collected other school supplies.
