Columbia Academy Student Support Team Assembles “Family Packs”
Columbia Academy (CA) Social Workers Erin Bartlett and Vanessa Lotito-Meier assembled backpacks of supplies for students this week in collaboration with the Lee Carlson Center.
The backpacks – dubbed “family packs” – include hygiene products, school supplies and warm winter hats. The team will be distributing them to some CA families as a way to say “hi” (from a distance) to students they work with.
“We want them to know that even if we aren’t together in person, we are still here for them,” Bartlett noted.
