Help a kid out! Let’s hear it for 10 year old Ronan Manning who has organized a school supply drive to help those in need! “Every year too many kids go to school without the materials necessary to succeed. This summer I am organizing a school supply drive to help other kids in our community to have what they need for class this fall. Please help by donating new back packs, pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, folders, and other school supplies. We will be collecting supplies on Wednesday July 26th from 4:30 – 7:30 pm at the South Boston Pop Warner field at Marine Park, 1880 Day Boulevard. If you’d like to skip the store and leave the shopping to us, you can donate here!
