PAULDING — It seems like summer has just begun, but school will be back in session in a few weeks. So, now is the time to think about school supplies and those who may need assistance in purchasing them.
Communities for Kids, Susan Farr and Nicole Harris and volunteers are gearing up for the 2013 school supply giveaway. This is the fifth year that Communities for Kids have coordinated a school supply give-a-way.
The generosity of Communities for Kids began in 2009 when Job and Family Services who had previously donated over $59,000 for school clothes and supplies and another $20,000 for book fees, got a budget cut. The cuts impacted not only families, but businesses and schools as well.
