It's Getting Cold! No Child Should Be Cold! With the temperatures dropping it's getting to be the season for warm clothing. No child should be without warm clothes for the Winter and the RHS and RMS Family Resource Center is here to make sure that doesn't happen. If you have a child or know of a child in need of warm clothing such as long pants, long sleeve shirts, jackets, or footwear, please do not hesitate to contact RJSHS FRYSC Coordinator Debbie Browder by email at Debbie.Browder@russellville.kyschools.us or you may call her at (270) 726-4799
