Toledo Catholic Schools Assistant Local Manager Claret Jacobs handed over the school supplies and spoke to Love News.

Some materials such as bristol board, markers, tape, they were able to get staplers, and staples nad some sanitizing wipes to assist them as they go through and prepare for the new year.”

Paul Mahung, Toledo Correspondent: Was the local manager helpful in any way ?
