The Urbana Food Pantry is collecting school supplies for 75 Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) students in the Urbana and Linganore feeder schools. The organization is asking for donations before August 16.
Jo Ostby, head of the pantry said lay-offs within the school system’s Community Agency School Services (CASS) left no one to coordinate the efforts in these areas. “We would like neighborhoods, churches, scout troops, any businesses and others interested to please donate school supplies so we can meet this need,” she said.
