The Courageous Steps Project’s 5th Annual Back-To-School Drive was a major success. With several supporters, sponsors, and volunteers that were able to contribute their time and energy towards shopping, sorting, or delivering supplies, we were able to donate bins of supplies to 27 schools in Eastern Maine (specifically Hancock and Penobscot counties).
Schools from GreenBush, to Dedham, to Bucksport, and Bradley, received supplies for their schools. All schools received bins filled with markers, crayons, and other goodies.
Brewer Community School Assistant Principal Jason Richards had this to say to our founder & CEO Connor Archer about our back-to-school drive efforts, "Thanks so much for your hard work in gathering these supplies to support the learning of our Brewer students as well as other local students. Your efforts are greatly appreciated by all of us here at Brewer Community School."
Many others had the similar message to Connor and the Courageous Steps crew.
A total of $2,500 was raised in monetary donations, and 14 locations filled/collected supplies for the event. Governor’s also partnered with us to host a collection day on August 1st where ice cream proceeds also benefited the event.
“I am already looking forward to next year’s drive, said Archer in a statement earlier this evening.” Archer encourages any schools needing support, to reach out to him via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
