NIC wrestling holding school supply event | Events
The North Idaho College wrestling team is getting ready to go back to class by making sure area kids have everything they need to be successful at the desk. The wrestling team will be handing out school supplies for those who need them on Thursday, August 29th, as part of their We Care program.
Assistant Coach Keri Stanley says the group regularly does work in the community, and that a lot of their work benefits the Susan B. Komen Foundation, but this year they thought they would mix it up.
“Its just a different way to get the wrestlers involved in the community,” says Stanley. Through generous donations from local businesses wrestling the team was able to collect $2,000 worth of school supplies to give away to anyone in need of them.
The team will be at the Riverstone Complex next to Escape Outdoors from 10am-2pm on August 29th with markers, paper, pens, crayons and other supplies. They will also be serving pizza to anyone that comes to hang out with them.
