We will be serving a yogurt bar, bagels & cream cheese, coffee, juice and mini quiches.  If you are able to help, please sign up HERE and drop off your donation at my home anytime Tuesday, March 13th, 2026 Rivera Place.  I will have a donation box on my front porch, and will be home all evening between 5:00-9:00pm.  I have found it so helpful to be able to prepare everything at my home beforehand rather than rushed at 7:00am in the staff room... ;)
