Dave Smith, Executive Director for the Kids in need Foundation and Gina Palmer, director of programs were present and helped distribute supplies to each child. Prior to students arriving to receive their supplies, Brookstown Middle students presented Smith and Palmer with small tokens of the district’s appreciation.
