Friday I was up at the mall collecting school supplies for needy kids in our area as they head back to school this week. We are looking for everything kids need for back to school as in; tablets, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, backpacks, glue, and highlighters. Pretty much whatever you get your kids for back to school, is what these kids will need. All the items will be donated to Mom’s House and the Family Enrichment Network.

If you haven't been able to make it up to the Little Red Schoolhouse at Center Court in the Oakdale Mall, you can find it just outside of Victoria's Secrets, the schoolhouse will be there until September 11th. So you still have time to help us out. If you can do anything, that would be greatly appreciated. Even if you picked up something for you child that they find out they won’t need, you can still top by and throw it in to the school house. You can make donations any time the mall is open.

The back to school drive is sponsored by Fidelis Care, The Oakdale Mall, and 99 1, The Whale.
