Supplies were donated to CEO and Danika Community Development Inc. during a summer Meet and Greet and through Amazon. Each school received a box of supplies for each grade level. Donated items include folders, markers, backpacks, binders, pencil cases, notebooks, rulers, glue sticks, and much more.
