Kingston, Pennsylvania, December 5, 2018 — The team at O’Donnell Law Offices of Kingston, Pennsylvania, is helping families by contributing to the newly formed Nurse’s Pantry at State Street Elementary located in nearby Larksville, Pennsylvania. The Office discovered that there was a need at the School for some children’s clothing, accessories and personal hygiene items including toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, baby wipes, soap and shampoo.
The hope is to see an improvement in truancy at the School especially due to lice from last year, with families being able to treat their children properly and have them come back to school within the three days allowed. The items will also be used to give the children clothing and book bags so that they are prepared for the school day, including their personal hygiene as they grow and develop. Many children do not have access to any of these necessities.
“Everyone immediately wanted to pitch in,” said Catherine O’Donnell, an attorney with O’Donnell Law. Attorney Neil O’Donnell added that “every member of our office contributed without question. The Nurse’s Pantry is a simple way to help children with their physical health and their self esteem. It also helps the children be present in the classroom allowing for the greatest opportunity for learning and development.”
