The non-profit organization is partnering with the Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District and two other organizations to provide school supplies and other essentials for families in need.

“We hope our event will give students an opportunity to stock-up on items needed to have a successful start to the new school year."

Clickstop Cares will host its first of five back to school shopping events for area families tonight.

Qualified families living in the Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District are invited to visit the Clickstop Cares Closet located at 2535 Bing Miller Lane in Urbana, Iowa. Shopping begins Thurs. Aug. 6, and will run from 5-7 p.m. Other dates include Fri. Aug. 7 from 9-11 a.m., Tues. Aug. 11 from 1-3 p.m., Wed. Aug. 12 from 5-7 p.m. and conclude Wed. Aug. 19 from 5-7 p.m.

Students will be able to pick out and take home backpacks and school supplies along with hygiene kits, new socks and undergarments. Those interested will also be able to browse racks of donated clothing. All items will be made available at no charge to children and their families. Transportation to and from the closet will also be provided.

“We hope our event will give students an opportunity to stock-up on items needed to have a successful start to the new school year,” Clickstop Cares Director Loraine Kelty said.

Many of the items available are made possible by generous donations, including the results of a community wide school supplies drive organized by Clickstop Cares, Monkeytown’s Care Now, the Vinton Area Ministerial Association (VAMA) and the Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District.

“Partnering with these organizations has allowed us to impact so many in our community in a positive way,” Kelty said. “We are grateful for their contributions.”
