Classroom Collections Drive

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Please help us thank our Spencer community again for their support of the Classroom Collections Drive for school supplies for those children that are unable to purchase all the needed school supplies to start the new school year!

There were 410 students in the Spencer Public, Spencer Sacred Heart and Iowa Great Lakes Lutheran schools that were in need.

We received over $8,500 in cash donations from service groups, businesses and individuals in addition to many supplies purchased and brought in to

the Southpark Mall. We were able to provide the school supplies plus most of the backpacks so each child will start the new year with everything they need.

I know that I have said it before but Spencer is a very generous community that is always ready to step up and help out their neighbors and give their support to help people or projects in need. Southpark Mall employees and the SAGA radio stations KICD AM, Big Country 107.7 and More 104.9 are just the facilitators of this project; the citizens, businesses and service groups of our community make it happen! Thank you for your generosity!

Kathy Anderson, Southpark Mall Property Manager, Spencer
