Ahead of the first day of school this week, The Salvation Army Tools for School program provided 400 children with backpacks packed with school supplies.
The donations were made possible through the generosity of donors and volunteers. Captain Pradeep Ramaji and Captain Priscilla Ramaji, of The Salvation Army, offered a big thank you to the Catoctin School of Music in Leesburg, which provided many volunteers to make Tools for School a success.
“We are so blessed to see our community’s kids carrying not only the backpacks from our Loudoun County Corps but bundles of joy and knowledge through our ‘Tools for School’ program,” they said in a joint statement. “We salute our precious donors, volunteers and employees who worked hard to make this program successful.”
