Thanks to all who contributed to the success of the school supply drive this year. As a result we were able to deliver two SUV loads to St. Frances/St. Rose and St. Brendan/Aiden’s schools in New Haven which made the students very happy. Your support to this worthwhile effort is deeply appreciated.
