Thank you note received from Kit Carson Elementary:
To everyone at Canyon View: Thank you so much for your kind and generous donations of backpacks stuffed with supplies! We can’t tell you enough here at Carson how much we appreciate (and need) community support from amazing people such as yourselves. It means so much to know that our families in need will be taken care of.
Thanks to you, our students can come to school prepared to learn. But not only that—it warms our hearts to know that they can walk in those doors in the morning and be proud of their cool new backpacks and binders. They don’t have to be embarrassed about using hand-me-downs. You can tell by the looks on their faces how much it means to them as well. We want you to know that we truly value our relationship with you and we wouldn’t have such a successful school year without your wonderful efforts.
Carson Elementary School Staff
The Canyon View Back-to-School ministry provided 25 fully supplied backpacks for eager students at Kit Carson Elementary School in nearby Linda Vista. The bounty was delivered via two carts on Monday, the first day of school.
In addition, boxes of surplus supplies and items for the staff workroom were included. This message is a collective “Thank You” to all the members at Canyon View who generously continue to support this community outreach.
A note was included in each backpack with these thoughts, in English and Spanish (Thanks, Gilbert for your translation!):
“This backpack was carefully filled with love by members of the Canyon View Church of Christ and Canyon Villas Retirement Facility. May your child’s new school year be full of learning and friendships.”
