Sign-ups for Moore Care, Inc., under way

Posted on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 2:32 pm

Sign-ups for assistance from Moore Care, Inc, are currently under way and will continue through May 28. Moore Care is the local non-profit group that provides back-to-school supplies to low-income families with children who attend Lynchburg Elementary School.

“We base qualification guidelines off of the Federal Poverty Level,” said Moore County president Dawn Casey. “This year, we are accepting children whose family income is up to 150 percent of the poverty limit. We are starting the annual sign-up dates this week at the Moore County Library.”

Parents and/or guardians need to bring proof of income when they bring their children to the sign-ups.

“We want to encourage everyone who even thinks that they may qualify to come by the library with their children during our sign-up times,” added Casey.

Sign-ups began Tuesday. Anyone wishing to receive the services of Moore Care, Inc., must sign up at the Moore County Public Library on one of the following remaining dates:  Saturday, May 18 from 9 a.m. until noon; Tuesday, May 28 from 3-8 p.m.

These dates and times will be the only times available to register your children for the services.

When attending one of the sign-up periods, parents must bring your child or children with you to register them. Families must meet the income guidelines established by the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines; therefore, proof of income must be provided at registration and children must also be currently enrolled in Lynchburg Elementary School.

Any child who qualifies for the service will be notified in their final report card. No other form of notification will be sent out.
