Did you know that there are approximately 500 children in need in the Summit public schools?  The Christ Child Society of Summit and Bridges Outreach are working together to collect next year’s school supplies for these needy families.  There will be collection bins during the week of May 13-17 by the main offices at all of the Summit public schools, at the entrances to St. Teresa’s Church and Memorial Hall, and at 36 Woodland Avenue in Summit. 

Residents can help by donating some of the following items:  1”, 2”, and 3” Binders, 3-hole Pencil Cases, Subject Dividers, 2-Pocket Folders, Marble Composition Books, Loose Leaf Paper (wide and college ruled), Spiral Notebooks (wide and college ruled), 8-Pack Colored Pencils or Thin Markers, #2 Pencils and Erasers, Pens (Blue, Black & Red), Highlighters, 3 x 5 lined Notecards and Glue Sticks.

In August last year, the Christ Child Society and Bridges provided over 360 elementary, middle and high school children in Summit, eligible for free or reduced lunch, with new backpacks and school supplies.  Parents were able to take the financial resources that would have been used for school supplies to pay for food, rent, and other necessities.  The Christ Child Society is a non-profit association of volunteers dedicated to serving at-risk children in the area. Bridges is an outreach program for the homeless delivering food, clothing, toiletries, and other necessities to those who are homeless or in need in New York City, Newark, and Irvington every week and opens its doors to neighbors in need every Friday. Christ Child Society and Bridges are pleased to partner with the Summit Junior Fortnightly Club, Coldwell Banker, Lois Schneider Realtors, Hilltop Bank, MONDO and St. Teresa’s Church.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
