A local student, Tia Nielsen, spent her spare time helping in the effort to collect needed supplies for 36 families at (Six L) Lipman Farms. Tia considers them her extended families after donating her time and energy on their behalf for the past few years. Four churches joined in the effort: New Life Community Church, Wesley United Methodist Church, Marco Presbyterian Church and The Family Church. The churches filled the back packs with school supplies and a gift card to use toward school. Tia, and her mother Tresa, delivered them to the appreciative families.
