Thank you for your support!

Thank you to the Kinsner community for their outpouring show of support to our Ukrainian clothing/dry goods drive! The amount that our community has donated to the cause has been overwhelming! Mrs. Goloja has stuffed her SUV full of items over the past week. We have had over 400 articles of clothing, 362 pairs of socks, and 100s of first aid supplies! I also wanted to give a special thanks to Kinsner Student Council and Mrs. Goloja for organizing this effort! Today is the last day to donate!
