School supplies for students in need will be available at the First Stop Help Center

(Lander, Wyo.) – This summer the First Stop Help Center, The Salvation Army and Shopko have worked together to get donations for school supplies for students in need. Donations have been given at Shopko, and now First Stop has compiled them into packages to give away.

We have some backpacks and other school supplies here in our office and will have special hours Monday the 18th from 11am to 1pm,” First Stop Help Center Director Melissa Frandsen said. “People that are in need can come in and pick them up. On Wednesday the 20th we will take the rest of the donations to the schools and they will give the rest out.”

The First Stop’s regular hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
