To The Daily Sun,
The Children's Foundation of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, would like to thank everyone who helped make our 23nd Annual Project Pencil a huge success. By working closely with the school nurses, guidance counselors and resource coordinators, the Children's Foundation was able to provide assistance to over 600 children. Backpacks, various school supplies, personal hygiene items, lice shampoo, underwear, socks and diapers were delivered to the local schools, preschools, and child care centers in the Lakes Region.
A special "thank you" goes out to The Citizen for offering to be a drop off location for back to school supplies and Bert and Mary, for delivering these backpacks and supplies to the local schools.
The continued commitment and generosity from individuals and businesses in our community, to helping "children in need" is heartwarming.
Thank you for your support.
St. Vincent de Paul Children's Foundation
