Letter: Apple Tree Project a huge success

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

The Gloucester Department of Social Services would like to thank all the sponsors and other participants in this year’s very successful back-to-school Apple Tree Project for the current 2011-2012 academic year.

Through the collaboration of individuals, businesses and other organizations who generously donated items, 42 youth in the custody of the Department of Social Services in Gloucester, Mathews, Middlesex, King and Queen and King William counties were provided with the necessary school supplies for their upcoming school year. These students ranged from pre-kindergarten through secondary education, with the majority of foster youth being elementary and high school students. The items provided included, but were not limited to, book bags (compliments of the Abingdon Ruritan Club), binders, notebook paper, pencils, pens, highlighters, crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue, rulers, composition books, folders, dividers, calculators and scissors.
