Backpacks for Schools
Every July and into August, Clonmell sponsors our backpack/school supplies drive for children in Gibbstown for the Gibbstown schools. This year, we followed their protocol during COVID; the school has room to sanitize any backpacks collected; supplies will not be put into backpacks as in prior years but will be given to school with packaging intact. Our lead coordinator for this ministry is: Diane Corradetti, firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is what was donated for our children to have a successful school year: lunch boxes, cooling packs, thermos, plastic sandwich holders, neutral backpacks, binders, composition notebooks, plastic folders, highlighters, markers, and sharpies, glue sticks, index cards, construction paper, crayons, pencil cases, pencils, pencil sharpeners, rulers, scissors, and stickers. Thank you to all who donated again this year to the children of our community.
