School Supply Giveaway (Along with Back to school Movie Night)

August 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

It’s back to school time and that means supplies for school….

The Watseka Park District, the Watseka Police Department, and the Watseka Elks Lodge are trying to lessen the school supply expense burden.

If you would like to help us in our efforts and purchase school supplies and bring them to the Watseka Park District we will be dispersing supplies on Aug. 15  at our Back to School Movie Night.

We are accepting any back to school supplies as well as gently used book bags, tennis shoes, t-shirts or hoodies with Iroquois County school logos on them. If you have supplies you would like to drop off, please feel free to do so anytime Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

We have supply lists posted as well. We appreciate your help and assistance and invite you and your family to join us for our Back to School Movie Night on Wed., August 15th beginning at 6:00 p.m.
