Thank you to the School Sites and Community for your continued support and donations.  Special thanks to the Fontana Foundation of Hope  for their generous contribution to help us achieve the collection of over 2000 pairs of underwear and 1700 pairs of socks during the 2022-2023 "Socktober" Sock Drive.
