BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES DISTRIBUTION EVENT

The Quincy School ~ Community Partnership celebrated its annual Backpack/School Supply Days held on September 8 and September 9 at the Snug Harbor, Clifford Marshall and Lincoln Hancock Community Schools, kicking off the new school year.   Superintendent Richard DeCristofaro was on hand at each event to welcome staff, students, and guests.  Thanks to the generosity of our Community Business Partners, 3,002 backpacks, generously filled with school supplies, were distributed city wide.  Special thanks to Andrea Velequez from Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, Judy Brazil and Lauren Pedretti from Quincy Credit Union, Bill O’Malley from W.B. Mason, Kevin Doyle from NAGE and our friends from Cradles to Crayons.  Once again, this event was a huge success!!
