We are asking participants to bring Back-to-School supplies for youth starting school in September. All donated items will be given out on a first-serve, first-come basis. Join IBNN and candidates running for office in the Twin Cities.
***This is a non-partisan event and if anyone stops in to talk about President Obama’s birth certificate, you will be asked to leave.
