School Supplies and Backpacks Again

Jun 10, 2016

by David Levine, President/CEO

While we are at the start of summer, and at the end of another school year, it is never to soon to be thinking about school backpacks.

Betsy Damitz, our Children’s Resources Coordinator, reported on preparations for our school supplies collection, which will begin in earnest in July.  She mentioned that we will have five collection sites this summer — places where we collect the needed school supplies in the community.

You’ll be hearing more about our school supplies drive in our upcoming weekly updates.  But for now, I’d like to leave you with these words from a mother who received supplies for her children from GSH last year:

“Betsy, thank you so much for all of your hard work on the backpacks for my children.  They absolutely loved them! It takes the stress away from em and the kids when we don’t have to worry about affording all of their school supplies… my family truly appreciates your help.”

Here’s one color-filled thank you note from last year.  We are looking forward to helping our families … and making sure our children have what they need for school.
