RTTN donated the remaining 20 boxes of food for Thanksgiving to our school. We have them located at school. If your family could benefit from one of these boxes of food, please come pick it up at school during school hours. These will be available while supplies last and include milk, ham, stuffing/dressing ingredients, canned food, potatoes, etc. If you will call the school ahead of time, we can let you know if we have remaining boxes. Please take advantage of the generous donation from RTTN.
