From pencils and pens to crayons and glue sticks to tape and scissors, students at JP Manning Elementary School are well equipped for the 2022–2023 school year thanks to the generosity of the Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital community.

“We have a long-standing relationship with the JP Manning Elementary School,” says BWFH’s Community Health and Wellness Program Manager and Emerging Leaders Committee Co-Chair Katie Plante. “There we help tackle food insecurity and teach the kids about healthy eating. But sometimes it’s the simplest of things, like new school supplies, that make the kids the most happy.”

During the annual School Supply Drive, which is coordinated by the Emerging Leaders Committee, BWFH staff are always generous with their donations and this year was no different.

“We had bags and bags of supplies to deliver this year,” says Plante. “The students and the staff were so excited to receive the items. Thanks to the BWFH community, they have the supplies they need to succeed in the year ahead.”
