MPD’s Book Bag/ School Supply Drive for the 2008/2009 school year

Now I don’t ask for a lot of favors but I’m going to ask one now. Please participate in this great program if you have the means. Even if it helps one child find the right path it’ll be well worth it!
From MPD:

“In order for us to acheive our goal of 100 we need 85 more book bags and additional school supplies. We have recieved numerous items so far, but we are not there yet.
