Summer may be in full swing right now, but in a few short weeks, students will be returning to school. DART is preparing for that time now. Each year, we help children who have been served in our program with uniforms and back-to-school supplies. In the past, we have received tremendous support from the community for this project. Now we invite anyone interested — whether it is an individual, a family, a group, a class, a business, or a church — to partner with us as we help get our students ready for the school year ahead.
