SCO's faculty and staff members really came through for students at Bruce Elementary School as we have donated over 81 backpacks in our recent Back Pack Drive, which was organized by SCO’s Social & Service Committee. The backpacks were delivered to the school on Wednesday and filled with school supplies for over 200 schoolchildren who are transitioning from homelessness with the help of the Salvation Army.
“It always brings me joy to help a local organization by giving back, especially when it’s for children in need,” said Melissa Hansbro, Social & Service Committee Chair.
Melissa Hansbro (L) and Dr. Julie Shalhoub (R) delivered backpacks to Bruce Elementary.
Located just four blocks south of SCO, Bruce Elementary distributed the backpacks at a community block party in August. Thanks to everyone who participated in helping these students start off their school year with a new backpack and supplies!
