Staff & Attorneys Donate 125 Boxes of Classroom Supplies to GRPS' Buchanan Elementary
Varnum staff members delivered more than 125 boxes filled with crayons, pencils, notebooks and scissors to Grand Rapids Public School's Buchanan Elementary today.
Varnum staff members and attorneys have personally donated and organized all the supplies requested by Buchanan Elementary teachers to prepare their classrooms for the school year, including more than 800 notebooks, 5,000 pencils, 1,000 sets of flashcards, and 900 highlighters. Just over 500 students are enrolled at Buchanan Elementary.
The relationship between Varnum staff and Buchanan Elementary has existed for more than a decade and has grown to a year-round friendship, including a luncheon for Buchanan teachers in the Fall, an ice-cream social for the students in the Spring, and small gifts and a visit from Santa Claus during the Holidays. Many staff members also adopt a family during the holidays to supply gifts and clothing.
