Farmers market collects donations for school supplies


DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA)- The Danville farmers market is giving back to the community. They host a community group each week, and today it was Crosspoint human services. Crosspoint helps kids that come from an abusive household. They often have to go to a new school but don’t have any supplies. People were able to donate school supplies, money, and backpacks for all ages.

The market manager Susan Franklin sees the impact these supplies can have on kids. “It gives them courage a new beginning they’re already scared they’re in a situation where everything has changed for them a new school, a new home, a new family, a new place and this gives them some degree of comfort in a new situation.”

The farmers market will host the census information booth next week. To stay updated on the Danville Farmers Market you can go to their Facebook page.
