To the editor:

There have been some very happy children and grateful parents in recent weeks, as they picked up Back to School clothes and school supplies from the United Way’s fantastic program that helps the region’s income eligible families.

A hearty thanks to all of the donors who have made this possible.

Purchasing new clothes and all of the needed supplies is a significant burden on struggling families. To receive two new outfits, shoes, a coat, socks and underwear and a backpack full of school supplies is truly a beautiful thing.

Thank you, Kathy Thomas, and all of the United Way volunteers who spend countless hours pulling this program off.

You have helped hundreds of children again this year — bravo!
