Tools for School 2017

August 6-27

Back to school already? Yup! Do you remember that Staples commercial where a family’s back to school shopping is set to the classic Christmas tune it’s the most wonderful time of the year?

This time of year can be exciting for kids and parents, but for many families in the Gallatin Valley living paycheck-to-paycheck, juggling monthly bills and buying school supplies can be stressful, even burdensome.
