Mr. Davis, noted Magnolia Middle School Agri teacher, has overseen the placing of Blessing Bag signs and drop boxes around the MMS campus.
This is a drive to gather supplies for the homeless shelter here in Magnolia. Once all the items have been donated and collected, all items will be put into bags for donation.
As Mr. Davis said, "I think that with everything going on that this is a great idea for our school to help the community."
A list of the suggested and requested items is below.
