Employees of the Estherville Medical Clinic and Avera Holy Family have been collecting school supplies for students over the past month.
Kris Schlievert, Estherville Lincoln Central elementary principal, and LizBeth Ramos, community outreach coordinator, picked up the donated supplies on Wednesday.
Items donated include notebooks, backpacks, shoes, pencils, pens, crayons and treats for those students who cannot afford to bring birthday treats. Employees also made monetary donations.
“It is the mission for the hospital and clinic to donate and help,” said clinic receptionist Donna Jean Tindall.
