CIRCLEVILLE – The take back the strip event has been a powerhouse for local donations and has injected a lot of assistance to people in need through the community, this month the event has aimed towards kids.
When Jeff Coleman started this adventure he said he never expected that a little event could turn into something that was so community.
“Its overwhelming the amount of support the community has for these events! When this all started it was a rough road but now with the backing from the city and the community the amount of good we can do each month is endless, said Coleman.
This month Coleman collected for Foundations 4 Youth, a Circleville Police youth group aimed at giving kids something to do in the community, and back to school supplies.
During the event Coleman asked for school supplies and donations for kids in need that are starting back to school this month. Supplies came in from book bags, full boxes full of notebook paper, crayons, and cash. In total the event collected 1,687 dollars plus a full truckload of supplies that will be given away free in the next few weeks.
“From the community we serve and all the supporting organizations we would like to thank Jeff Coleman and the take back the strip community for making this donation possible. Small individual donations add up to an overwhelming donation that we can use to help 100’s of families county wide,” said Foundations4Youth.
Foundations will announce the giveaway in the next week on how you can get some supplies for school.
