Neighbors Helping Teachers

Calling all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and interested individuals. We have a project for you. It's easy, cheap and environmentally correct. The Henry County Library will be participating in the Neighbors Helping Teachers efforts by becoming a drop off point for supply donations. Many area teachers have experienced funding cuts to their budgets. These cuts impact the amount and variety of classroom supplies available for use by the students. Recycle those empty tissue/paper towel rolls, pill bottles, Pringles cans, string, beads, craft supplies, fabric remnants or envelopes of any size.

The Neighbors Helping Teachers group was formed to provide school educators of Henry and St. Clair Counties in Missouri with supplemental resources for their students and classrooms. Educators are welcome to "shop" for free, the 1st Saturday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the old Samaritan Center, located on Center Street in Clinton. Faculty/Staff ID's are required, unless a district does not have them and then names will be checked against a list held by Neighbors Helping Teachers.

A full list of the supplies needed for the classrooms will be displayed at the Henry County Library main building and at the Lenora Blackmore Branch in Windsor. Donations will be accepted anytime during regular business hours.

Should you like to volunteer with the Neighbor Helping Teachers or have additional questions the contact number for the group is 660-885-1607 or Email to
