One resident, Lacey Bouton says, “This is a really stressful time for parents, teachers, and kids because nobody knows how to maneuver this chapter of our life history right now. So like, I said any help is good.”
Mara Clifton, a parent, is thrilled about the promotion. and says, “We want to get some [supplies] for home, so that he can do things at home after school and with his homework. He needs notebooks and activity books, so if they got that, and they got that at 10% off that would be wonderful.”
