McDonough Joins John Theissen Foundation to Donate School Supplies to Local Students

School supply driveAssemblyman Dave McDonough announced recently the overwhelming success of his 14th annual school supply drive held in conjunction with the John Theissen Children’s Foundation. The drive generated hundreds of backpacks, folders, writing supplies, notebooks and various other school supplies that will be donated to less fortunate families this fall.


“I would like to thank everyone who made this year’s school supply drive a tremendous success, and thank you to John Theissen who is always willing to work with us to see that local children are set up for success this school year,” McDonough said. “Many families struggle to provide the plethora of required materials their children need in the classroom and don’t know where to turn. This drive is about giving all of our students the best opportunity to succeed and that is what we did once again this year.”
