To The Daily Sun,
The Children's Foundation of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, would like to thank everyone who helped make this year's annual Project Pencil a great success. By working closely with the school nurses, guidance counselors and resource coordinators, the Children's Foundation was able to provide assistance to 600 children. Backpacks filled with various school supplies, along with 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 Ed Pierce at The Citizen for the great article and publicity he provided, to the John and Cheryl Barton and the Lakes Region Corvette Club for their donations, the 31 Party "Give back Diva's, Mel and her crew at Walmart, Empire Beauty School, and all the anonymous donors. To all the volunteers who helped stuff the backpacks and bag them up for delivery to the local schools, and to Bert, Mary, and their grandson for delivering these backpacks and supplies to the local schools. "I couldn't have done it without you."
The continued commitment to the Children's Foundation and generosity from individuals and businesses in our community, to helping "children in need" is truly appreciated.
Thank you for your support.
St. Vincent de Paul Children's Foundation
