    ApexTammy, I wasn't looking for graph paper when I was at Staples earlier this week, but Faye's list shows this:

    The Salvation Army in Raleigh is always in need of school supplies and backpacks. Since they have the shelter for woman and children on site at their location on Capital Blvd. they have new needs year round as new children enter the shelters with their mothers. The building is located right across the street from the Raleigh Flea Market and the new Greyhound bus station, They also feed several hundred people a day as well as giving out bags of groceries to families in need, so hygiene items and food are greatly needed.

    Turns out the $0.17 price at Staples this week for the 1 subject, 70 sheet notebooks is only for Wide Ruled. The College Rule notebooks are $1.99.

    Most of the Rescue Missions have backpack give-aways for kids near the back-to-school times _ I know Durham Rescue does something since they usually show it on WRAL, but Raleigh mission may also.

    The Carolina Hurricanes often do a back-to-school drive in the early part of the season also. Sometimes they offer ticket deals if you make a donation. I don't see anything on their website yet though for this year.

    I am on the hunt for some big 3 ring binders, if anyone comes across any.

    I love the Sharpie markers for marking items wrapped in plastic and destined for the freezer.

    The deal at Staples for 25% off supplies with the purchase of a backpack has me wondering what a good place would be to donate a backpack. I know there are lots of kids in need who are probably doing without.
