Here at the office we’ve been doing some cleaning and have at least 20, 3 ring binders ranging in size from 1” to 3”. They are all used and a few of them have writing on them that is permanent. I know this time of year everyone is scrambling for school supplies and the last thing we want to do is throw these away. I’m sure with a little love (kids love to decorate with duct tape!), these would help a few folks to not have to buy as many supplies. Stop by the extension office soon if you’re interested. No limit, first come first serve J
