Glen Cove, New York: The Residents at The Regency Assistant Living remember their school days and have generously supplied Glen Cove youth in the Glen Cove School District with school supplies that make a difference in a child’s preparedness, confidence, and self-esteem when the new school year begins.
Resident, Joan Brannan, a teacher for 25 years in the Syosset School District, emphasizes that, “A good breakfast in the morning gets the child started in a positive and healthy way but equally important is that the child be prepared with the tools of learning such as pencils, paper, crayons, and a sturdy backpack to carry them in.” To this day, Mrs. Brannan is stopped and thanked by her former pupils for her service to the community.
Spiro Tsirkas, Executive Director of the Glen Cove Youth Bureau writes, “Every child needs the proper tools to succeed and with the kindness and generosity of everyone who donate to the “Fill a Backpack Program” we are able to give these students those tools to start off their academic year on the right foot.”
The Residents of The Regency will be presenting their Fill-A-Book-Bag donations to Mr. Tsirkas on August 29 at 3 p.m. All Glen Cove businesses are welcome to bring their generous donations to personally present to Mr. Tsirkas at The Regency, 94 School Street, Glen Cove starting at 3pm, August 29. Light refreshments will be served. Call and reserve your time with Gail at 516-674-3007.
