School bells are ringing in Newark...
Incredible to know that summer is soon coming to an end as TV commercials are promoting "Back to School Sales" and stores are bringing out fall-season clothing to greet students ready for a new school year. I ask myself, when less-fortunate children and their parents see these commercials, what goes through their minds knowing that they are not able to get those new sneakers, new backpacks, or cool clothes? We may not be able to supply these children with the most expensive shoes or clothes but I am happy to say that, as in years past, we will supply for this new school year approximately 100 needy chidlren with new uniforms and shoes that the Newark schools require, along with school supplies.
It has been a great summer here at St. John's, thanks to you! Your generosity makes it all possible. You are always in my prayers.
With a grateful heart,
