VCRTA 08/15/18 Autumn Service Project

VCRTA members collected three huge boxes of school supplies for their 2018 Autumn Service Project.  Paper, pencils, pens, folders, notebooks, glue, markers, boxes of tissues, scissors and over 20 pounds of crayons made up the collection.  VCRTA selected Fayette Elementary School as the recipient of the collected supplies.

VCRTA Community Service Chairperson Suzy R. and President-Elect Brenda W. give the school supplies to Fayette Elementary Principal Janel Bonomo.  Principal Bonomo greatly appreciated the supplies and remarked that the Fayette community comes together to help each other and that this would be well used throughout the year.

VCRTA members also collected over $140 for school supplies that will be provided through the Salvation Army.
