We received the following thank you from Jessica Brandon, President and CEO of the Guardian Angel Settlement Association:
"Thank you for St. Gerard Majella's continued support of our annual Back to School Program. We were truly astounded by the generosity of your parishioners - 5 large rolling bins filled multiple times with school supplies and more than 100 backpacks! We could not do this work without committed partners like St. Gerard Majella…. The Annual Back to School Program serves nearly 600 children in grades K-12. Each child receives a backpack and all required school supplies. Thanks to this program and your support, they start school ready to learn and well-prepared for a successful year."
Special thanks to Jackie Akins and the Outreach Committee for coordinating this effort. It's no wonder that SGM has a reputation for generosity!
