Meskwaki Family Services, along with many other departments, are sponsoring a Fill the Bus Event in August at the Tribal Center. Families may come and pick up their school supplies and then enjoy an Ice Cream Social afterwards. Children do not need to be present to receive their school supplies. This is open to whole community, regardless of which school your child is attending. Supplies will be available as long as supplies last.
There are four large boxes placed at the Tribal Center, Senior Services, Tribal Clinic, and Meskwaki Family Services that people may come drop off supplies to donate. Supplies may be new or gently used. A school supply list for MSS and South Tama will be at each station so you know what school supplies will be needed this upcoming school year. Once you donate, there will be yellow backpack slips that you can sign your name and will then be hung up at the Tribal Center for recognition. Once you sign, you can leave the slip at the station and someone will be by to pick them up to be displayed. There’s also an additional slip that you can take with you to keep that states what you donated.
