KIDS Continued from Page A1 board, which consists of Tonya Gilbert, David Orr, Robin Foster, Tina Foster, Chris Petermann, Shawn Smith, and Nancy Blair "The board represents members of local orga- nizations, businesses, and the school system," Petermann said. The organization intends to continue to assist stu- dents in Perkins-Tryon schools, but also plans to become a local clearing- house for information. "We'd like to make a master list of services that are available in the com- munity," Petermann said. "That way it is easier for people to find help, and local organizations don't duplicate efforts " She said the organiza- tion is constantly in need of monetary donations, but there is also a need for lots of volunteers to help with tasks such as sorting supplies and packing the backpacks. "Our fundraising goal this year is $13,000," Petermann said. The group will host a Baked Potato Supper fundraiser at the high school commons area on Friday, Aug. 31. Every- one is invited to attend. Anyone who would like to make a donation can mail a check to 4 Kids and Community, P.O.
