Devereux Pennsylvania brings smiles to faces with back-to-school drive
the third consecutive year, employees at the Devereux Pennsylvania Community
Services center secured donations – and conducted a back-to-school drive – that
benefited youth served by the organization’s local outpatient programs.
year, more than 320 children and families received donations, including
backpacks, folders, binders, pens, notebooks, pencils, crayons and pencil
sharpeners, to help them prepare for the new school year.
year, our amazing staff works together to obtain these important donations for
the children we serve in our communities,” said Jennifer Cooper, Devereux Pennsylvania Community Services director
of operations. “The majority of supplies were donated by Cradles to Crayons,
but we also had multiple donations from employees at several Devereux centers.
I am so proud of our Community Services team!”
a recent event, where the donations were distributed, families expressed their
gratitude, not only for the school supplies, but for the work the
organization’s employees do to support and care for the youth and families they
serve every day.
smiles on the kids’ faces said it all,” added Cooper. “Our staff receives daily
gratification from the work we do, but to so readily bring a smile to a child’s
face is especially meaningful.”
