Members of the Apache Trail Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution delivered school supplies to AJUSD’s Project Help Coordinator Rosie Portugal-Brastad. The supplies will be used to fill the needs of students whose families are eligible to receive aide. Once needs are fulfilled the balance of the supplies will be distributed to classroom based on teacher requests.

The organization collected the supplies over the summer delivering them to Project Help prior to the start of school for a timely distribution.
