Donations of hundreds of school supplies for homeless and underprivileged students at Wimauma Elementary School were collected for this project.

Volunteers put together packages for easy distribution by Principal Milady Astacio. A car load of donated items was delivered to the school on Jan 25. Three additional mitzvah projects took place, however, this was the largest project of the four.

The day ended with a potluck dinner for volunteers and contributors.

Mitzvah Day was chaired by Carol Balent, Idalea Rubin, and Arlene Cohen.
