Our caps

The Friends of Elsberry Literacy organization believes that it is important for kids to read, to help their effort to purchase books for Elsberry School District students, they have signed up for the “Our Caps, Your Cause” fundraising campaign through Prairie Farms. It is simple to be involved, just purchase a gallon of Prairie Farms Milk and send the cap to school with a student, Karin Busiere, high school librarian will take care of the rest. She added, “The community is fantastic about supporting the school district and I hope this will be one more way they can assist with educating our children.” If children bring caps in by Feb. 10 there is a small incentive available.
