With the 2019-2020 school year about to commence, families are hustling to gather school supplies and prepare for the first day of school. However, children need a lot more than just school supplies to succeed. In order to do their best in school, they also need to feel their best. This is why Gage’s Pages has organized their 7th Annual Gage’s Pages School Supply Drive featuring their new program “Boxed for Success”. Members of the community are encouraged to “adopt a box” to fill with supplies students need to kick start their school year with success. Gage’s Pages was formed after a sweet young boy passed away in 2012. Inspired by Gage’s amazing life, his family began collecting book donations to benefit Denison ISD as a way to honor his memory and support the education of local children.
Angels of Care not only advocates for medically fragile children, but additionally loves to support the health and education of the local youth. Recruiting Manager, Eric McInnis, discovered this amazing opportunity and the entire Sherman recruiting department rallied together to fill their very first box! The team collected spirals, pencils, art supplies, socks, underwear, tooth brushes, and more which will be donated to Denison High School. Fulfilling the “Boxed for Success” wish list was an incredibly rewarding experience and Angels of Care looks forward to contributing in the future as well as helping to spread the word about Gage’s Pages.
