Mother donates school supplies in memory of son

This was the seventh annual year that Lisa Raley has collected school supplies and donated them for use by students in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.

She’s done this in loving memory of her son, Brett Raley, who died in an accident in May 2012 when he was 18. Brett had attended schools in the district so Raley wanted to bring the donations here to benefit current students.
