Thank you for your support of SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE 2023

We are overwhelmed with gratitude as we reflect on the incredible success of the CAST School Supply Drive. Your unwavering support has ignited a beacon of hope and promise for countless young minds in our community. Together, we are ensuring that every child has the tools they need to embark on a journey of knowledge, growth, and achievement.

A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to each and every one of you who contributed, volunteered, and donated both time and supplies. Your acts of kindness are the cornerstones of this endeavor, enabling young learners to not only excel in their studies but also to embrace the joys of learning wholeheartedly.

Special shout-outs are in order:

To the Police Benevolent Association for your generous supply of donations. To the Southold Town Police Department for being there as local kids picked out their CAST School Supply Drive backpacks. A special thank you to the staff members at Cutchogue-NewSuffolk Library, Mattituck-Laurel Library, Southold Free Library, and Floyd Memorial Library for their continued support and efforts.

We’d also like to express our deepest gratitude to Hilda Muñoz of Nice Haircut Inc. by Hilda in Greenport and Mariana Solano of MS Hair Salon in Southold for providing FREE back-to-school haircuts at CAST’s School Supply Drive. Your kindness and care have added an extra dash of confidence and excitement to our students’ new beginnings.

Collectively, we’ve achieved remarkable results this year. A total of 479 children have already been provided with backpacks. As the distribution continues, we anticipate reaching an even greater number—possibly up to 520 children served.

A special shout-out to Harvest Pointe and Riverhead Building Supply for their contribution and collaboration. Your dedication to our cause has been a vital part of our success.
