Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce 
Keeping You Informed!

The Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce is a local chamber without ties to either the Kansas or the U.S. Chambers of Commerce.  We believe that being independent allows us the best opportunity to serve our members with an unbiased approach to issues that are important to the local communities where we serve.

Eagle Nest Inc. Coordinating Donations of School Supplies.
 
Eagle Nest Inc. is a faith-based, non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization with goal of improving the well-being of women living in poverty.  The primary purpose of Eagle Nest Inc. is to help women identify problems and opportunities that keep them from reaching their full potential and enriching the lives of their children.  Eagle Nest Inc. is now accepting donations for school supplies.  The supplies are being distributed to families and schools in our community.
 
We are excited to serve as a hub to coordinate these gifts.  By centralizing the donations from the many willing and giving people in our area, we can streamline collection and distribution to make sure every student has a successful start to the school year. Supplies can be dropped off at Eagle Nest's storefront office at 112 E 9th in Winfield Tues-Fri from 10-4. Monetary donations can be mailed to Eagle Nest and marked "school supplies" on the memo line. Citizens Bank, Millington Street Baptist, Grace United Methodist and First United Methodist are also drop off locations.  So far this year 40 families have received their necessary supplies, we expect approximately 60 more before school starts the third week in August and approximately 15 more after school starts, we also supply teachers in the area throughout the year.
 
Anyone in need of school supplies may call 229-8282 for an appointment.
