Going back to school has looked different this year, but students are now returning to the classroom, some on a hybrid schedule. Thank you to everyone who made this happen! We are very appreciative of those who helped provided pencils, paper, notebooks, crayons, calculators, masks, and other supplies needed for the children we serve to have a good start back to school.
Reusable bags were provided by the Trader Joe’s on West 86th street to hold the supplies, as well as paper grocery sacks from local Kroger stores. Several volunteers met on a Thursday night to sort and prepare the supplies for distribution.
We were able to provide school supplies for 110 students. They were excited to receive the school supplies, and we hope they have a great start back to in-person school!
