Give the kids a hand this afternoon by trekking over to the Ballard Office Max, picking out a couple of good pens, a nice stapler, and maybe a three-ring binder or two, and adding them to the growing collection inside the yellow school bus in the parking lot. Can't get it done today? The bus will reappear at the U District Office Depot on Friday.
