School is quickly approaching, and some families are struggling to buy their children the essential supplies they’ll need for the upcoming year. Thanks to an initiative started by Camdenton teacher Eric Cook, that’s quickly changing. Eric says he put an idea on Facebook to adopt children and take them school shopping. He says he got the idea for the popular initiative while taking his kids shopping.
He says that, while there are other drives to help children in the area, he likes the idea of having personal contact with the child you’re helping. In less than a week of putting the idea on Facebook, the initiative has spread from out of Camdenton to all across the Lake Area. If you would like to help sponsor a child, you can e-mail Eric at EricCook29@yahoo.com.
