Regional Office of Education No. 3 was chosen to receive this year’s delivery of supplies and food for local homeless families through Feed the Children’s Home and Literacy Program. The semi delivery of 1,400 backpacks and multiple pallets of food arrived at the Vandalia ROE office on West Jefferson Street on the morning of April 3. Students from New Approach and Aspire schools, as well as members of the Mulberry Grove High School student council, assisted in the sorting and dividing of items among ROE offices Nos. 3, 41, 45 and 50, to be distributed to their school districts.
