Epworth Children & Family Services Partners with American Student Supply to Streamline its 2012 School Supply Drive
ST. LOUIS, MO, July 16, 2012 — Each year Epworth Children & Family Services strives to meet the school supply needs of the youth they serve by requesting resources from organizations and individuals.
This year, they are making it easier than ever to donate. By partnering with American Student Supply, a local online school supply store dedicated to education outreach, donors now have the opportunity to purchase much needed school supply kits called MyPacks, which will be delivered to Epworth, free of charge, for distribution to thousands of youth served by more than one dozen Epworth programs.
To donate a MyPack School Supply Kit, log onto www.AmericanStudentSupply.com/Epworth.
