Dillard Middle School
Our outreach project with Dillard Middle School will continue again this year with our first offering of basic supplies which we will deliver at Open House on Wednesday, Aug. 24. We attended Orientation last year, handing out pencils, paper, sharpeners, erasers, pencil cases and spiral notebooks (along with smiles and encouragement!) and want to duplicate that effort again this year. Your gifts of these basic supplies are needed to accomplish this project. Shop the sales and fill the tub outside the office! Jan Cagle
