PAFS school supply drive a success

For the second year, the Professional Administrative Faculty Senate (PAFS) sponsored a donation drive to benefit the children at Westover Hills Elementary School. This year, the group focused on collecting critical school supplies that are needed to replenish the fall back-to-school items heavily depleted. More than 10 large collection boxes were filled with supplies donated by Reynolds employees and students.

“We more than doubled our goal of collecting 400 items and delivered about 1,000 items to elementary students last week. It shows you that the true mark of generosity is not just giving, but giving more than enough. We have outstanding colleagues with a generous heart,” said Kelly Smith, PAFS president.

Items donated included book covers, crayons, folders, glue sticks, markers, notebooks, paper, and more. The PAFS would like to thank everyone for their support, especially supply drive organizers Carol Rodi and Lily Mirjahangiri.
