Every year, since 2002, The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit has offered Tools for School, a school supply assistance program in August. This year, the program served 617 local students with school supplies and a new backpack.

The Baker Triplets, of Port Clinton, started
the school year off right with their new
backpacks and school supplies, courtesy

“Since the program was completely funded by donations, the overwhelming success was due to our local residents, businesses and organizations that donated funds such as The Ottawa County Community Foundation Grant, Stensen Grant, Ottawa County Republican Women’s Club, Huntington Bank and the Community donations,” said Maureen Saponari, Salvation Army Director.

Saponari also thanked those who contributed funds, supplies and volunteer hours to the program. “We could not continue to help our children without your support,” she said.

The Salvation Army - Port Clinton Service Unit currently has additional supplies and book bags available to anyone who is still in need of these items. Call Saponari at 419-732-2769 for more information.
