As you are no doubt bustling here and there gathering new clothes and school supplies for your kiddos, consider this: many women’s and children’s shelters need these same things this time of year. So, grab a couple of extra next time you are out and drop them off at your local shelter. Imagine the smile on a child’s face to pack up his own snazzy pencil case with new Number 2’s, glue sticks, and crayons.
