A night to remember
Stafford County Public Schools social workers want to find sponsors for high school seniors, so they can attend prom. “You never get to go back and repeat these years,” social worker Maarja Bracero said.
So if you could help a teen attend prom–either this year or next year–let Kathy Olson, coordinator of social work services, know.
Olson also needs a few other items to help homeless teens and homeless families with students in Stafford schools. Her wish list includes:
- laundry supplies
- plastic baggies
- non-perishable food
- cleaning supplies
- paper products
- gift cards to grocery stores, gas stations, fast food restaurants or drug stores
- new underwear and socks (kids and adult sizes)
- storage boxes with lids
- laundry baskets
If you can help with any of these items, contact Olson or drop off donations at the Tyler Building of the Melchers Complex–610 Gayle Street; Falmouth, Va. 22405.
Contact Olson at 540/899-6213 or email@example.com.
