Back-to-School shopping was always a favorite of mine growing up. But I wasn't thrilled with the clothing part of the shopping. For me, it was the paper, the notebooks, the Trapper Keeper, the pens, the pencils and the folders.
I spent a few years on the low end of the income spectrum and know how hard it can be to buy all the materials for the new school year. With programs like Adopt-A-Classroom, those of us with a little extra money can help out our schools and our youth by donating. What makes it even better is when a company like Elmer's makes it easy for those of us without the extra money to do something! I'm handing a virtual bag of school supplies to Christine G. because I'm certain she'll Bag-It-Forward.
Thanks, Stacy, for bringing this program to my attention so that I could Bag-It-Forward!
