The start of school is on the near horizon.

This is the first time in many years tha schools in Minnesota

can start before Labor Day.

So, please watch closely around schools as many have sports

programs in full swing.

 

But, the  bigger issue is that many kids do not have the tools to be able to learn.

 

Tools like;

 

Pens,

Pencils and sharpeners.

Rulers

Colors crayons or pencils

Erasers

Loose leaf paper.

Notebooks

and a lot more!

 

In my area, the food shelves are dong what they can to help this also.

I would be that most communities have some kind of help program of this sort.

 

Don't know what to buy.

Most department stores will have a list of what the kids need in their grade and school.

Pick up a list and help a child out!
