Thank You Espiritu Families: We Will Feed 430 Children For The Next Year

We would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank our Espiritu families for participating in the School Tool Box program this year. By ordering supplies through School Tool Box, we were able to make a significant impact in the lives of others.
The School Tool Box organization donates one meal for every box purchased through their program. They partner with Feed My Starving Children which is a non-profit organization that provides nutritionally complete meals for malnourished children. Donations from our school supply orders enabled 430 children to be fed for the next year. Special thanks to Mrs. Maiello for spearheading this project once again.
