A big thank you to everyone at PAH who made the Women’s Health Outreach Initiative’s 2016 school supply drive a huge success! This year, Stanton Elementary School received a bounty of much-needed school supplies, including:
- 171 glue sticks
- 79 packs of crayons
- 180 notebooks
- 1000 pens and pencils
The supplies were given to Stanton Community Partners, whose main goal is to provide teacher support to Stanton Elementary, a public K-8 school in South Philadelphia that serves 315 students. At the start of each school year, SCP aims to provide each teacher with a bundle of appropriate supplies for the classroom to help ease the burden for the students and their families, many of whom cannot afford to buy school supplies on their own.
