SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WGGB) — Thursday was delivery day for all of the school supplies you donated last week during our drive at abc40.
We loaded up our truck and dropped everything off at the Springfield Public Schools Parent Information Center on School Street. These supplies will be added to other donations for delivery this weekend to city school children.
Patricia Spradley is the Chief of Parent and Community Engagement for Springfield schools. She expressed her thanks to you for your donations and to ABC40, Mix 93.1 and Kix 100.9 for spearheading the drive and added, “It’s important for us that we make sure our students are prepared and have the resources and tools so that they can be successful. And we’re really trying to make sure that there’s equability. And so for students and families who are less fortunate, we want to make sure that everybody has enough so they can all succeed.”
Students can pick up back packs filled with supplies during the 6th Annual Back to School Celebration. It’s this Saturday from 10 to 2 at Blunt Park.
