Caring people support 1,500 area students

I am a Rock Falls great grandmother who, for the past 4 weeks, has been volunteering at the Sterling-Rock Falls School Supply Closet.

It has been a privilege to work with this team and be a part in helping to serve the needy students in the Whiteside County area.

In this 4-week period, more than 1,500 students have been furnished with their basic supplies as our resources would allow.

Without the fine cooperation coming from our area residents, businesses, and organizations, none of this would have been possible.

Thank you to our caring community.
