  • 56 boxes of gently used children’s clothing
  • school supplies
  • new shoes
  • toiletries
  • first aid supplies
  • diapers
  • computers
  • Spanish books

A special thanks goes out to Emma Walsh, Nicole Bustamante and the students of St. Isidore’s School. Emma and Nicole led a toothbrush and toothpaste drive at school and collected hundreds of toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste. Great job!
