Adopt-A-Student


Back-to-School supplies for local children in need
Sponsored by: Love INC, Canton Partner Churches
and Local Businesses

  One of the first outreach programs that Love INC of Greater Canton and our partner churches established was the Adopt-A-Student program. In cooperation with the local churches, a church member is asked to adopt a child to provide school supplies and a backpack for a local student in need. Love INC's Clothing Closet also provides a $10 clothing voucher to each student. Love INC also partners with Sanford Hospital (Canton-Inwood), Canton Family Vision Clinic and Haisch Pharmacy to provide each student with a health kit. This year Love INC of Greater Canton provided 86 backpacks/school supplies to the students attending the Canton school district.
  This year we were pleased to have the Lincoln County Cruisers and the Canton Booster Club donate a C-Hawk t-shirt to each Adopt-A-Student to show school spirit for game days. The kids were also provided the opportunity to shop for winter coats, hats, boots, and gloves with a winter coat voucher on October 3rd.
  Every year Love INC identifies parents who struggle to provide school supplies for their children. Since 2008 the Adopt-A-Student Program has continued to help these families provide a positive start to each school year. Thank you Canton churches and businesses for your  generous donations.
