YATES CENTER ? As the mother of two school-aged children, Shannon Culver is well aware of the stress parents face when getting their youngsters ready for the upcoming school year.
It was a brief conversation with a fellow parent last year that got Culver to thinking: perhaps the community could step forward to ease the burden, at least a little, by helping cover the costs of school supplies ? pens, paper, binders, notebooks, scissors, etc.
?It always broke my heart to see kids show up at the start of the school year with nothing,? she said.
