Hundreds of students benefiting from school supply drive in Spring Valley

Posted by wlpo on August 13, 2015

School supplies aren’t cheap so you can imagine how big it is to have staff at St. Margaret’s Hospital stepping up with three vans full of supplies for underprivileged children.

A hospital fundraiser, a cash donation and contributions by hospital staff helped fill the vans and also provide three thousand dollars to the United Way’s “Helping Underprivileged School Kids Year round”, or H.U.S.K.Y initiative. Students in Bureau, La Salle and Putnam County are all helped by H.U.S.K.Y.

The charity this school year is donating supplies to nearly 5,000 students at 31 schools.
