DASH is having a back to school drive! Donate backpacks and schools supplies on August the 11th (Friday) and the 14th (Monday) and get a free ride on a DASH bus.

Now schools are asking for items such as earbuds, headphones (not earbuds), earbuds with built in microphone as well as reams of copy paper.
Here is an example of part of Jefferson-Houston’s list for students:
