Your help needed to equip kids for back-to-school

As debates rage about whether or not to have in-person school starting this month, one thing is clear – many kids need supplies in order to keep up with their fellow students. This year, these supplies are especially important, as kids face virtual and blended learning environments in response to COVID-19.
