VFW drive for school supplies

Published: Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 11:50 AM.

The Ladies’ Auxiliary of VFW Post #10069 recently sponsored a drive to collect school supplies that will be used to help students in need.  The Men’s Post and the American Legion also contributed, and a successful “Escargot Night” fundraiser helped purchase many of the supplies.  Jonathon Vickers, Aiden Gainer, and Ava Ryan, students at Port St. Joe Elementary School, show some of the many supplies that were delivered by Linda Deller with the Ladies’ Auxiliary. 

Port St. Joe Elementary deeply appreciates the generous donation. 

Other individuals and groups in our community have also contributed supplies throughout this school year, and we would like to thank Piggly Wiggly, Sacred Heart Hospital, United Methodist Church, Dollar General, the Junior Service League, and the many anonymous donors who have helped our students.
