  • This morning ☀️ SJNCS dropped off Clorox Wipes and non-latex gloves to support our front line responders in the midst of the pandemic. 
Thank you Mustangs for generously providing the wipes to our teachers at the beginning of the school year. We kept enough for the remainder of the year and were still able to give to our community. 
We pray for the men and women working the front lines who will use these supplies, for the people they will be helping, and the world as we battle COVID-19. "It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving." Mother Teresa 🐴💚 #sjncsknox #mustangsgive
