This year, the group collected enough donated funds to provide school supplies to 145 children! The beneficiaries of the school supplies are children of hourly employees at Ashby Ponds; each year, a day in August is dedicated at the community to providing these staff and their children the opportunity to select supplies from notebooks to glue sticks to backpacks!
