Back To School Supply Drive

To Baker Chamber Members:

We hope this letter finds you doing well as we know this last year has been an incredibly challenging one. We are proud of the resiliency displayed by the residents and the business community of Baker. We are especially proud of the work our students have done to manage the many challenges presented throughout the COVID 19 response and are sure they are enjoying a well-deserved summer break. As we look forward to their return to school for the 2021-22 school year, we are excited to be able to once again sponsor a school supply drive for our elementary school students. It is our goal to provide book bags and supplies to 250 or more of our Baker students. On behalf of the chamber, I invite you to join us in supporting our students. We will be collecting donations through mid-July and plan to host the back-to-school event at the Chamber building on August 28,2021 at 3:30 pm. We are accepting cash donations as well as donations of needed supplies with 3 participation levels for our sponsors:
  • Friends of Baker (up to $150.00)
  • Honor Roll ($150 – $249)
  • Principal’s List ($250+)

You can make your cash donation on-line at our website link below or through a check to the chamber (contact Belinda at 225-400-4277). If you prefer to make a donation-in-kind of needed supplies, you will find attached a listing of the supplies we will be collecting. We are also in need of backpacks for the students, as well as refreshments and door prizes for students and parents at the Back-to-School event. You can drop off your donation at the chamber office and/or coordinate with Belinda for arrangements to be made. 

We thank you in advance for your generous support of our Baker students and look forward to celebrating our students and sponsors on August 28,2021. Please join us in helping our students prepare for a successful school year and in building a better Baker together!
