The Evans Promise Council needs your help for Evans families in need of toiletries and household supplies. Teachers and staff will have access to a resource room to distribute items whenever needed to students in their classrooms.
Children at Evans may not always have the necessary toiletry items or cleaning supplies to eliminate germs in their homes. Lack of these basic necessities can lead to increased illnesses and absences.
Please sign-up for as many items as you can for drop off at the Evans Jr. High School Office in a container marked Promise Council. Gift cards from Walmart, Meier, and Target are appreciated as well and can be dropped off at the EJHS Office.
As always, the Caring Adults supporting Evans kids are awesome. Thank you for your help!! To help please click on the following link: EJHS Families In Need Sign Up
