The start of fall marks the beginning of the school year, which can be a stressful time for many parents. For those struggling to make ends meet, getting the school supplies that their student needs to thrive can be challenging, especially as we leave a pandemic and enter a recession.
To help these children start the school year in the best way possible, Grungo Colarulo has partnered with the GC Giving Back Foundation to donate school supplies to students in need. We are so glad we were able to contribute to such a worthwhile cause, help the volunteers prepare, purchase materials needed to fill the backpacks, and hand out bags to the children.
This year, the GC Giving Back Foundation gave over 40 backpacks to the students at Pauline Petway Elementary School in Vineland, New Jersey. Most of the bags featured some of the kid’s favorite cartoon characters including Disney princesses Anna, Elsa, and Mirabel, superheroes like Spiderman, and other fun designs like unicorns. The hope is that these themed bags and items will bring a smile to the student’s faces and offer them the materials they need to thrive this school year.
We hope these study materials will help children with both this coming school year and the years to come. If we can help give local children a solid foundation for future success, then they are sure to do great things for themselves and our community. We are so blessed that we could be part of ensuring these children start the school year right, and we wish everyone a happy fall. Contact our firm to learn more about our community involvement.
