Back to school shopping can get pretty expensive, especially if you're shopping for more than one child. This school year, we're teaming up with your local Toyota dealer to give families in need a little help with their back to school shopping.

Now through August 10, we are asking you to help us pack our lobby. We are asking for backpacks and various new school supplies (pens, pencils, crayons, markers, tissues) for area children to help them get started this school year.

You can drop off your donation at our lobby (408 N, 24th St. behind the Coach House) from Monday to Friday from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm or at Shottenkirk Toyota (5333 Broadway) during normal business hours.

Once all of the school supplies have been collected, The Muddy River Riders will pick them up and distribute them around the area. So if you're out shopping during the next few weeks, please purchase a couple extra boxes of crayons or pencils and bring them by the studio to help children in our area.
