Acts 4 Ministry Received Donations From Sacred Heart High School National Honor Society Students
Students in Waterbury, CT's Sacred Heart High School National Honor Society collected school supplies to donate to Acts 4 Ministry's annual Back-to-School Drive for low-income students across the Greater Waterbury area.
By: Acts 4 Ministry, Inc.
The group chose to collect the supplies to help support children in the Waterbury community for the upcoming academic year.
The National Honor Society members exceeded their goal by donating over 400 items including pencils, notebooks, binders, paper, folders, crayons, glue sticks, and more to the non-denominational nonprofit organization. In addition to the school supplies, the school community collected gently used clothing that was also donated.

Acts 4 Ministry's 2018 Back to School Drive for new or gently-worn uniforms to be given to low-income school-aged children throughout the Greater Waterbury region will begin on August 1 and run through the entire month of August.
