The New Beginnings Angel Mission in Calumet needs backpacks and school supplies to give to kids whose families can’t afford them. Along with backpacks, the list includes pens, pencils, erasers, staplers, loose paper, binders, two-pocket folders, calculators, glue sticks, crayons, markers, colored pencils and rulers. Cash donations are also welcome, and will be used to purchase supplies not donated. The Mission helps kids from elementary through high school, and even has several college students who have signed up for the program this year. Donations may be brought to the store in Calumet Store Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 10:00 and 3:00, and Fridays from 10:00 until 6:00. You can view their Facebook page here.
