NORWALK, Conn. -- Several organizations and friends of the Norwalk-based Family and Children's Agency have donated school supplies to clients of the group for the upcoming school year.
Students from elementary school through high school will receive backpacks, pencils, rulers, notebooks and folders.
The Service League of Boys of New Canaan, the Sciarretta and Lord Families of Wilton, FactSet Research Systems, Professional Media Group, LLC, and members of the Agency’s Junior Board of Directors are donating supplies to children involved in a number of programs across the agency, including Specialized Foster Care, Mentoring, Counseling and the After School Program.

“We are so thankful to the Service League of Boys, Sciarretta and Lord families and FactSet Research Systems for their continued support, and to PMG for joining the back to school drive this year,” Robert F. Cashell, president and chief executive officer of the Family and Children's Agency, said in a statement. “These donations will be greatly appreciated by both the students who will use them and the parents who may be struggling to afford them.”
