Matheny student Katherine Gaudio asked Matheny employees to donate school supplies for a special project being undertaken by her Girl Scout troop, part of SU69 Girl Scouts of the Heart of New Jersey serving Bedminster and Bernardsville, NJ.
Katherine and her fellow scouts were collecting the supplies for the children at The Somerset Home for Temporarily Displaced Children,
(www.somersethome.org) a nonprofit agency in Bridgewater, NJ, dedicated to providing a variety of services to youth and young adults who are at risk of homelessness or maltreatment. Every year, the agency helps more than 500 children, teenagers and families.
Katherine was able to pack three boxes of supplies, which included notebooks, loose-leaf paper, pocket folders and pencils.
