|Students show off their new book bags.|
Each student at Edmondson Heights Elementary School – Grades pre-K through 5 – received a free book bag filled with school supplies, courtesy of United Stationers. United Stationers is a national wholesale distributor of business products, including office products, computer supplies, office furniture, and maintenance supplies.
There were plenty of smiles and wide eyes as the students received their book bags.
The company contacted guidance counselor Denise L. Bullock and offered to provide 475 book bags, each filled with a variety of much-needed school supplies.
Ms. Bullock stated, "I was overwhelmed with their generosity and very impressed with their follow-through."
