Even in troubling times, we see the good in people. This week Kasey Ristow, StuCo Advisor for Garfield Elementary School, which is part of the San Felipe Del Rio Consolidated Independent School District, made a donation of gift bags filled with essential toiletries put together by the Garfield Student Council.
Gift bags included shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste and a cozy pair of socks! They will be given to families in need, including victims of domestic violence.
Kasey presented the gifts to Delia Ramos, Director of Community Based Services at BCFS Health and Human Services-Del Rio, under careful COVID-19 safety guidelines at the organization’s office in Del Rio, Texas.
“We are so honored to accept this thoughtful donation on behalf of those we serve,” Delia said. “I want to thank StuCo for thinking of BCFS-Del Rio and for their kindness even in the darkest times. It’s truly uplifting.”
