She will ensure that your child receives these items after fall break. 

Delivery is expected at BCA on Oct. 22. Items will be in the gym. We will  need volunteers that day to help with sorting and distributing. If you can offer any time that day, please contact PTL Fundraising Coordinator, Sheila Stephens.
