Thanks to the generosity of Chris Cinella, his clients at Edward Jones, and other Melrosians who made donations, we were able to provide brand-new backpacks and school supplies for a number of Melrose children before the first day of school.
As you can see from the photo, this year, the sixth for the school supplies drive, was the best year ever. We received almost 70 backpacks as well as notebooks, pens and pencils, crayons and markers, and even calculators. As a result, we were able to help a number of local families send their children off to school with the supplies they need to get off to a good start. Thank you to all who donated for your generosity!
