We brought books and other school supplies and dropped them off at the school, they were truly appreciative and we were happy to do that. They need all the help they can get to educate the Children's there.

We dropped by the library to give them a donation. Check out their website to see what they need. They are providing a great service to local kids. They may also need volunteers if you are looking for that.
