The chief of police is my town has one of the kindest hearts I’ve ever seen. He was at dinner the other night and overheard teachers talking about how many children in their class wouldn’t be able to afford supplies this year. One had eight homeless children in her class last year, so got the supplies for all of them.
The overheard conversation has resulted in a huge school supply drive for the children in our community who can’t afford to buy markers, pencils, paper, and other basics that help start out their educational year.
I challenge every reader to pick up TWO of everything if they can afford it and surprise your own child’s teacher with an extra set of everything. And remember, back packs are just as important to kids as the other supplies!
