School donations requested



The Cincinnati Area Chapter of the American Red Cross is urging students to help children in disaster or war-torn areas by donating new school supplies to the School Chest Program.

If enough schools, churches and other organizations fill at least one school chest with supplies this month, the chapter hopes to send more than 50 filled chests to its national headquarters for distribution.

The American Red Cross will provide participants with information, a chest and a list of items that are required to complete the chest. The chapter will also use money donations to purchase school supplies and construct as many chests as possible. Loose school supplies cannot be accepted, only completed chests.

Information: 579-3000.
