School Supply Giveaway Event
« on: August 10, 2017, 08:53:30 AM »
So proud of our folks here in Berwyn! We had a fantastic event last week where we gave away unused and gently used school supplies that were collected from the schools at the end of the school year in June.

This is from Julia McAleer-Forte, who came up with idea and got us all together. The event was an enormous success with hundreds of our local families able to get some school supplies. The line went around Komensky Elementary where the event took place:

An amazing thing happens when you give kids the opportunity to lead. They excel. Time and time again on the night of our giveback people commented to me how impressed they were with this group of kids. Our community has an abundance of young leadership that made our School Supply Giveback Event incredibly successful.

Thanks to everyone here, and to the incredibly patient South Berwyn families that participated. Above is the distribution video, and a great thanks to the many people that helped. Look for us next year, and don't forget the Back to school picnic, where more supplies will be available.

To our future leaders, you're all AWESOME-SAUCE!!
