[ARCHIVED] Fire Stations are Drop-Off Points for Project Fresh Start

The Stevens Point Fire Department is proud to be a drop site for Project Fresh Start, which provides school supplies to students in Portage County who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program.

The Stevens Point Fire Department is proud to be a drop site for Project Fresh Start, which provides school supplies to students in Portage County who qualify for the free or reduced lunch program.

The start of a new school year means buying school supplies, and for lower-income families, it can be a time when money is tight. Project Fresh Start depends on the support of our Portage County community to help provide the school supplies for the students in need. This year there are over 2,900 students who are eligible.

Beginning in July, individuals, businesses, churches and other groups can collect school supplies to drop off at designated sites throughout the community. All of these supplies will be collected between August 15-19.

Both Stevens Point Fire Stations are drop-off points. Doors are open at both Stations from 7:30 am until 9:00 pm unless staff is out responding to an emergency. There is always at least one staff member at Station One (corner of Division and Franklin Streets) from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
