Mission seeks school supplies,

volunteers for August event

STEUBENVILLE — Though it’s only July, Urban Mission Ministries already has thoughts of area students returning to the classroom as it begins preparations for the 2019 Back-to-School Bash, set for Aug. 15.

The mission is looking for assistance in two ways, according to the Rev. Ashley Steele, executive director, and that includes donating school supplies or being a volunteer.

Area residents, groups, churches and businesses are welcome to collect new school supplies, book bags and toiletries and bring them to the Urban Mission throughout the summer. All items can be dropped off at the War Memorial Building at 423 North St.

Donations of specific supplies also can be made online by visiting the mission’s Amazon Charity page and looking for Urban Mission Ministries.

Individuals or groups also are encouraged to get on the volunteer list as the mission needs close to 50 volunteers to make the event a success.

For information, contact Tiffany Beckwith, the mission’s community engagement director, by phone at (740) 282-8010 or by e-mail to tbeckwith@urbanmission.org.
