July 17 - August 16


We are gearing up for our biggest collection drive of the year - School Supplies! Last drive we were able to send a box full of supplies to every public school district in Muskegon County. These supplies helped fill classrooms, went to students in need, and supported the learning environment needed for our students to succeed. All school supplies collected in Oceana locations were delivered to public schools in Oceana County, and all school supplies collected in Newaygo locations went to public schools in Newaygo County! 

This year, we are asking for teacher nominations from our classrooms! Teachers will be determined and selected by a volunteer committee! Make sure you submit your favorite teacher for a chance to have their classroom stocked for the school year! 

This drive is important to our community because it supports our youth by providing them the tools necessary to receive a high-quality education and relieves the stress of back-to-school shopping for our struggling families. Did you know that in America, the average family spends $697 per child in back-to-school shopping?
Locally, that is close to our average mortgage rate. That means if a family is struggling to make ends meet, back to school shopping can cause a serious dilemma. 

Congratulations to our 2023 Distinguished Lakeshore Educators!
