Alarming Problem with an Easy Solution

Posted: Updated:

  After rolling dice to see who buy this round of coffee, folks in Cooperstown are now dropping off their donations at the counter.

Man: "You have to donate to this…"

  Jars like this one are setup at a couple of places around town. The money will be used to buy kids school supplies.

Annie Somers, Cooperstown: "If everybody simply dropped a dollar in a jar… one dollar buys 200 sheets of notebook paper or 10 pencils."

  Somers, who's a cook at the Coachman restaurant came up with idea. Somers says she also   started asking local businesses for donations. She's already collected over 13-hundred dollars.

Annie Somers: "Cooperstown is a very caring, close Community and all you have to do is ask."

  The actual number of kids in need is a bit shocking. School officials here at Cooperstown say over 40-percent of their students are at the poverty level.

Audrey Faul, Principal: "We're not just going to stick with school supplies. We want this to be year round. So, let's say a child needs a second pair of tennis shoes or a child needs winter clothing."

  Faul says there are around 80 kids just at the Cooperstown school in need, and they plan to help out at other schools around the area.

  She says if anyone asks for help, they'll try to fill the need.

  If you'd like to help, monetary donations can be sent to:

Citizen's State Bank

912 Burrel Ave SE

Cooperstown, ND 58425

*Please make check payable to: "In the Name of a Child"
