That's all you need to drive to make a significant difference in one child's life. We still need someone who is willing to pickup a few Garfiled Elementary fourth grade students everyday after school and drive them one-way to The KRP House in Baxter. KRP=Kids Resiliency Program and is an awesome program of Lutheran Social Services! Pick-up starts on Monday, January 7th. Will you help? To learn more, contact Jonelle Bollig at 218-297-2020 or email jonelle.bollig@lssmn.org
