A Bounty of School Supplies for Needy Students

Larry and Evelyn with the purchased supplies
Over these past months, HSP has received numerous monetary donations for our School Supply Drive along with a myriad of school supply donations. Thanks to the generosity of these donors HSP is able to provide local needy students with new school supplies. With these new supplies students are sure to have a positive learning experience and be more prepared for class. Young students need supplies to help them succeed in school, and HSP is excited to be providing these students with the tools they need. Two wonderful friends and volunteers at HSP, Larry and Evelyn Erven, were able to go out and purchase various school supplies with $1,000 dollars from the School Supply Fund. Larry and Evelyn were able to purchase folders, pens, pencils, coloring supplies, notebooks, watercolors, and glue. Larry and Evelyn are long time HSP volunteers who are the chiefs of organizing our library of books for the Children’s Birthday Project.

We wish to thank Larry and Evelyn for making the school supply purchases on behalf of HSP. The supplies were purchased yesterday, and will arrive at the schools this week. We also want to thank all of the donors who have donated to our School Supply Drive this year. Every donation helps a child to succeed, and HSP is ecstatic about how successful this year’s School Supply Drive has been. We are still receiving supplies through the end of October and into November! It’s not too late to donate!
