...but a quick persusal of yesterday's flyers demonstrates that the retailers of America think it's time for back to school shopping.
Should you be heading out to do some early bargain hunting for school supplies, please remember Set for Success, Councilor Kate Toomey's great effort to collect back-t0-school items for homeless kids in Worcester. If your kid (or a kid you know) needs it or has it on a classroom list, count on someone else needing it, too: notebooks, pens, pencils, sticky notes, colored pencils, crayons, markers, binders, folders, etc.
Right now you can drop donations off at Friendly House, or stash them away with your kids' items, and pull them out later in the summer, when there will be donation boxes all over the city.
We now return to our usual summer programming.
