Chad and I received a letter from our good friend Trina, regarding needs for school age children.  She writes:

Good day all.

Just back from Catholic Charities Back to School distribution. The volunteers have it running well, but donations are down. A student who came this afternoon needing markers didn’t get any…

We are in need of pencils, pens, notebooks, folders, markers, erasers, dry erase board markers, highlighters… Anything you can do to help get this message on the radio would be appreciated.

We’re accepting donations 8-4, Monday through Friday and 8-7 on Wednesday at 157 Roosevelt Road in St. Cloud (right behind Tenvoorde Ford). We have 1,500 more kids signed up to receive supplies.

If you know of an event or cause that we could feature on Local 411, please send Chad or Kelly an email about the event location, details, times and purpose, and picture or flyer attachments. We'll do our best to inform the great Mix community. Send your information to: or
