The goal for the Back to School Drive is to assure that all children in need, living in McLeod County, will return to school this fall with the basic supplies needed for the school year.
Basic School Supplies Needed:

#2 pencils, erasers, 4 oz bottles of glue, glue sticks, pencil boxes & bags, plastic pocket folders, spiral notebooks, scissors (Fiskar), rulers, boxes of color markers, loose leaf paper, boxes of color pencils, highlighting markers, protractors, compasses, calculators, 3-ring binders, black fine line Sharpie markers, pencil sharpeners with covers, pens (black, red, blue), Prang water colors, 4-pack of dry erase markers, dictionaries, thesaurus’ and backpacks.
How Can You Help? 

Purchase any of the needed supplies and drop them off at Common Cup Ministry or your local church (who might be conducting their own drive). Monetary donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase additional supplies. 

You may also consider conducting a school supply drive at either your place of work or ask a local business if they would be willing to donate supplies or money to purchase supplies.  Every little bit helps!

Throughout the summer watch for discounts/sales on the needed supplies.  We will also be accepting additional new backpacks.
Requesting School Supplies

Parents must request supplies for their children by using the official request form. Forms are available with the link below, at area schools and area churches, or call Common Cup to have a form mailed to you. Since only 400 children will be able to receive supplies, parents need to get their requests in as soon as possible.
Churches and businesses will deliver their collected supplies to Shalom Baptist Church in Hutchinson on August 18th. 

Supplies will be distributed
August 20st, 5-8pm, and
August 21st, 9-11:00am.
Back to School Drive 2014-2015
Even though summer has just begun, we are looking ahead to the Back to School Drive once again being hosted by Common Cup Ministry & Salvation Army.
