Joanie's Closet is an organization that helps under-resourced Lake Zurich Unit District 95 students and their families with basic needs.
Among other things, Joanie's Closet provides free school supplies for any District 95 student in need.
To help in providing these supplies, Joanie's Closet will conduct a community school supply drive from July 29 through Aug. 12.
Collections bins will be in the Ela Public Library, the Ela Community/Senior Center, Curves, and New Age Transportation.
