The First Day Fund program is in its 16th year providing school supplies for Taylorville students in need. This year the program is providing more than 210 students with school supplies they need this school year.
Daniel Raab is the Co-Chair of the First Day Fun. He says they take specifically what the school district says each child needs at each grade level, and helps to get those supplies for those students.
Raab says because what students need at each grade level varies, so does the cost of sponsoring students at each grade level.
Anyone can mail a donation to the First Day Fund by mail to the Taylorville Sertoma Club, P.O. Box 74, Taylorville, IL 62568.
