Diana Reijo , Cardinal Report Writer

The Fig Leaf Thrift Store in Iron River has donated $350 to South Shore Elementary School so that the school can purchase needed supplies for children attending. The Fig Leaf has supported South Shore Elementary School for the past several years with the donation of money to buy various needed items for students.  The funds are specifically targeted to be used for children who may have a difficult time in purchasing the needed supplies for school or personal care.
We would like to thank the Fig Leaf Thrift Store for their continued support of students at South Shore. In these difficult financial times, their generous donation will go a long way toward helping needy families in the South Shore School District.
The Iron River Rebekah Lodge #192 has donated monies to South Shore Elementary School so that the school can purchase supplies for elementary school children in the district.  This donation is greatly appreciated by the school and will help in the quest to ensure that all South Shore students have adequate supplies for learning this school year.  Thank you to the Rebekah Lodge in Iron River for their continuous support to our school!


Some local churches, including Immanuel Lutheran and St. Ann Catholic Church of Cornucopia, and Herbster Community Church, Herbster donated a large number of school supplies to the South Shore School District
Eve Erickson, Mike Herrick and Judy Kerr presented the school the large number of supplies on behalf of the three churches.   The churches combined their efforts in collecting supplies and money from their members to give to South Shore.

“We greatly appreciate the efforts of the congregations in these churches       to get needed school supplies to our students.”  Clendon Gustafson, District Administrator, said.  “Schools in this day and age need all the help they can get and it is a blessing to have supplies, including notebooks, crayons, pencils, etc. available for students to use.”
