Returning to school looked a little different this year. Although some kids were starting back in-person, while others were doing classes virtually, one thing remained the same – all needed school supplies.

Our Leavenworth Family Support Center was able to bring smiles to 174 children in need through its annual school supply drive. Leavenworth is a high poverty area, and this is an important service to the families that Catholic Charities’ Leavenworth staff interacts with each month.

Senior Manager of the Leavenworth Family Support Center, Jackie Masoner-Long, said, “The best part of the handout day for me is always seeing the youngest kids with their backpacks. It is awesome when a kid struts out in his new backpack like he’s the biggest thing in the world!”
