Ready for school?

The Salvation Army wants to make sure your children are through its Back-to-School program, and one of the drop-off points is at the Centre Daily Times.

There is a collection box in the front lobby of the CDT at 3400 E. College Ave. for the program, which is for families in need in Centre County.

The Salvation Army will offer each qualified child a new backpack filled with school supplies and have asked for donations of loose-leaf, wide-ruled paper, two-pocket folders and three-ring binders fine.

The Salvation Army also asked for medium tip markers, medium point pens, 24-pack crayons, packages of colored pencils, No. 2 pencils with erasers and pencil-top erasers. Other items include glue sticks, white glue, packages of construction paper and zippered pencil bags.

Other drop-off points are at Dairy Queen, Re/Max, the Youth Service Bureau, the YMCAs in State College and Bellefonte, Toftrees, Wiscoy, Jostens, the Wal-Mart off Benner Pike or at the Salvation Army office at 2603 E. College Ave. in suite G.
