Please come to the August PLAIN breakfast and join your neighbors in donating school supplies for our local school, Rockbridge Elementary. Parents who struggle to put food on the table may be challenged to provide their children with necessary school supplies. With the firm belief that every child deserves the tools they need for academic achievement, we want to provide support. For ideas on what to bring, see this link for the list prepared by the school. Or you can make a monetary donation and volunteers will do the shopping for you.  For more information see the article on page 5 of the summer edition of PLAINTalk, click here.
