This is a picture of some of the school supplies that we collected this year.
We filled 20 backpacks and two big bins with school supplies and still had a few bags of supplies too.
In addition to the basic providing of supplies - I hope that we also sent the message to the kids that receive them that there are other people who think that education is important and who think that they are important. That is so much more vital than having a new pencil - knowing that there is someone out there who thinks you are important and who wants you to succeed - that is outreach to the soul.
Thank you all.
