This is where you can help. Collect the school supplies and then deliver from 1–3 p.m., Wednesday, July 27, to the CAC at 216 University Ave., Sewanee. Individuals may also take their donations July 11–26 to donation bins located at Regions Bank in Sewanee, the Sewanee Mountain Messenger office and the University Bookstore. The University Bookstore will also offer a 15 percent discount on one item for anyone/family that makes a donation.
For those who wish to make monetary donations, money is accepted through July 26 at the Blue Chair Bakery, the Lemon Fair, Shenanigans and Taylor’s Mercantile. Please make checks payable to the CAC.
The CAC will oversee the distribution of the donations to those in need during its last South Cumberland Summer Meal Program, noon–1 p.m., Thursday, July 28.
