But for some students and their parents, even those supplies are simply out of reach financially.

If everybody does a little, we will do a lot.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row equal_height=”yes”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10159″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10168″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10157″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are seeking materials from homes, put in plastic bags (paper bags, boxes, etc. are also acceptable) and dropped off at Galuppi’s on Saturday, May 30. We will set all bags collected aside and not touch them for a week, giving time for any COVID-19 virus to die off. Social distancing guidelines and face coverings will be enforced during the drive.
