Free school supplies in Eagle

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado
Special to the Daily

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado ” Mary Lou Yeik is organizing a school supply drive to assist downvalley families with their long, and often costly, classroom lists.

During the past week, Yeik has been inundated with pencils, glue and crayons. She figures she has enough supplies to fill 30 backpacks.

Now comes the fun part. The backpack give-away is slated for Thursday at Beveridge Real Estate in downtown Eagle from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. During these tight economic times, Yeik urges anyone who could use a hand with their school supply needs to drop by.

Any backpacks left over after today’s give-away will go directly to downvalley schools for distribution. For more information, contact Yeik at 390-2843
