Hooray! This project is fully funded

We stood on the playground and watched as the first plane struck the World Trade Center. Children around the country responded to our trauma by sending care packages to help ease our pain. Now we would like to do the same for the children who are victims of Hurricane Katrina. Our funds at our 98% free lunch school may be limited, but our hearts are full. Please help us send $500.00 in school supplies, which would include pencils, notebooks, glue sticks, scissors, markers, crayons, etc.
