Senatobia, Mississippi – The Junior Auxiliary of Tate-Panola is
excited to invite everyone to donate back to school and nursing
supplies for distribution among schools in our area this month.
Last year, donations from the community were enough to provide a box
of supplies each to 8 schools in the Senatobia, Tate, and North Panola
school districts. Members of the Junior Auxiliary of Tate – Panola are
confident that this year donations will increase. School supplies are
needed throughout the school year, but this initial collection allows
schools to start with a small surplus for those students who are
unable to complete their back-to-school lists.
Members of the chapter have teamed with Wal-Mart of Senatobia to
collect supplies from the community this month on July 28, 2012 from
9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. outside the entry area. Schools in our
community welcome a variety of donations, including hand sanitizer,
Neosporin, notebooks, wide-rule notebook paper, white glue, crayons,
pencils, folders with brads and pockets, Kleenex, Band-Aids, erasers,
child-size underwear packs, child-size socks, backpacks, etc. Monetary
donations received during this collection period are used to purchase
supplies not received on the collection day.
