On Thursday, August 21, 2014 BlueGrace Baltimore donated school supplies to Perry Hall Elementary. Perry Hall Elementary is a small school built in 1956 with about 700 students enrolled. Donna Bergin is the Principal for the elementary school where it’s the Home of the Gaters football team. BlueGrace Baltimore office with the help of Staples raised about 100 lbs of school supplies to donate to Perry Hall Elementary. Amanda Dudley – a 3rd grade teacher greeted Michelle Welk and Margaret Zarzecki who hand delivered the supplies to the school’s lobby.

“It was so cool. When we got there the principal (Bergin) made an announcement,” said Welk.

Teachers and students greeted the Welk and Zarzecki in the lobby.

“Everyone looked so surprised and appreciative for the supplies,” said Zarzecki.

Dudley received her own bag of supplies to keep in her room for students to use throughout the year.

The personal book bags were given to Kathy Cooney (Student Counselor) to give to students personally as gifts. BlueGrace Baltimore is proud to come together on behalf of our Giving Grace Charity program and make this outstanding donation. We just want to say how much we enjoyed being involved in this Back to School Drive and the happiness it brought to us today when we saw the amazement on the faces of the school staff.

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.” – On behalf of BlueGrace Baltimore.
