Books and school supplies. Students at Hoover Elementary in CR are in need of school supplies and reading books. Hit especially hard by the derecho, several students are displaced from their homes. With the potential for at-home learning on the horizon, there is a call for school supplies and picture and chapter books for these children to have at home to facilitate their learning. Used books are welcome. All types of school supplies are welcome. Bring your gifts to the donation box near the Miracle Barn at PBC.
