Mission Central Collecting Items for Jackson K-8 School, York: MissionLink June 28, 2017

Many of you know that we have been and are still collecting various school supplies for use in activity kits and for distribution to those in need.  We are also working on a project for Jackson K-8 in the York City School District.  Pre-K bags are being assembled and provide assistance with critical skills for little ones as they prepare for Kindergarten.  The items currently needed are:


Pre-K Bags:

  • Letters – individual letters so the kids can make words and use their hands to develop and work on motor skills
  • Numbers – individual numbers, again to help develop motor skills and number recognition
  • Blocks – with letters and/or numbers
  • Workbooks – options for kids to write and trace numbers and letters
  • Books – for parents to read to children
  • Other items that can start the learning process with regards to recognizing letters and numbers and start the gross motor skill development – maybe you have a favorite item you used with your children or that you have found to be successful

We are also collecting hygiene items which will be used to create bags for distribution.  Items needed:


Hygiene Bags:

  • Soap
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Floss
  • Combs
  • Deodorant
  • Tissues

Please note that all of these items can be found at Target, Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree and other discount stores.  If you use Amazon, remember to use Amazon Smile which gives a portion of your purchase back to a charity of your choice and you can have them delivered directly to us at 5 Pleasant View Drive, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050.

Just go to smile.amazon.com and log in to your account.  It is the same account you already have.  You then simply designate Mission Central as your charity.  Now you are helping people and generating donations for Mission Central at the same time! (If you are donating items specifically for the Jackson K-8 drive, please let us know)
