Thanks to the generous donation by Chase Bank, several of our students were able to receive new school uniforms! We would also like to thank Ms. Pearson for facilitating the donation, and Ms. Marshall for working diligently to ensure a proper fit for the students. This was a wonderful blessing to our students and a testament to the generosity of many people.
