Donation drop-offs can be made in the morning, at the entrance of each school, between the hours of 7:00-7:30am at the High School, 7:15 - 8:30am at the Middle School, 8:00-8:30 at Mabel I. Wilson School, or at the Central Office from 8:00am-3:00pm.


If you are unable to make those drop off dates, the Salvation Army will host an additional drop off day on Saturday, March 26 from 10am-2pm. You can drop off your items at the Salvation Army trailer which will be located between Mabel I. Wilson School and Greely Middle School.


If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Caswell, Community Development & Resource Manager for MSAD #51 at 829-4800.
