Crosslake Presbyterian Church is collecting back-to-school items, but not for students.

The church is collecting items for teachers to use in their classrooms. The congregation wants to help teachers spend less of their own money. Items like pencils, cleaning wipes, composition pads, dry erase markers, etc. are being collected for both Crosslake Community School and Pequot Lakes Middle School.

Additionally, Crosslake Presbyterian will give each school a handful of Target gift cards so teachers can purchase supplies as needed.
