It's that time of year: Back to school shopping! And I know I am stressing out about it. The cost of school supplies can definitely be a struggle for many families. For this reason, I got super excited when I heard about what one local organization is doing to make the task a little easier for families in need.

Muddy River Riders have collected book bags for families with little ones headed back to school in a couple weeks. This Saturday, they will be at Smith Brothers Powersports from 12-2pm handing them out.

According to their Facebook page, more than 50 book bags will be filled with brand new school supplies that have been donated from the community.

If you know someone in need that might be able to benefit from this initiative, make sure and let them know about it. Smith Brothers Powersports is located at 5005 Broadway in Quincy.
