In an earlier post we told you about the General Service Administration’s (GSA’s) recent school supplies drive to benefit YSI children and youth. The drive was completed on August 18 and the collected items were presented to YSI staff. As you can see, we ended up with a lot of
brand-new, high-quality supplies.

The next day a group of student volunteers from Philadelphia University came to YSI and organized the supplies, which are now on their way to our program sites. From there staff will distribute them to the vulnerable children and families they serve, in an effort to prepare everyone for the start of the school year. Thanks again to the GSA for their generosity and commitment to our clients, and to Philly U for their support. Because of you our  at-risk clients will have the supplies they need to succeed in school this year.
