150 schoolchildren living at The Road Home Shelter received back-to-school items thanks to the Apple Tree Program, a four-week campaign by the shelter to collect new clothing and school supplies. Apple trees with paper apples attached, featuring specific children's needs, were set up at various businesses in the area and participants bought items for their chosen child.
