BONNERS FERRY — The school supply drive, hosted by Pestarino Ranch and Holliday Hill’s Massage Therapy, ended on Aug. 29. They received more than $500 worth of school supplies through donations.

Three businesses contributed, Super 1 Foods, Pestarino Ranch, and Holliday Hills Massage. They were able to fill 22 backpacks, five each for the high school and middle school, and four for each of the three elementary schools. They plan on making this an annual fundraiser and will be starting much earlier next year so backpacks can be delivered before school starts.
