Many families in our area cannot afford to buy school supplies for their children, but there is a program to help. It's called Fill A Backpack, Fill A Need.

Basically, they rely on community donations of both money and school supplies to fill backpacks for thousands of needy children.

You can donate now through August 13th.

They will be collecting donations in front of the Walmart in Rib Mountain on Saturday, July 14th and Sunday, July 15th from 10am - 4pm.

There are also several donation drop spots around the community if you can't make it out this weekend. To find the closest one to you, call 211.
