SSM DePaul Hospital Donates Hundreds of School Supplies for Ritenour Students

SSM Health DePaul Hospital staff collected hundreds of school supplies and other items for Ritenour students to use this school year.  The supplies were presented by SSM Director of Volunteer Services Elandra Dillard.  Ritenour Superintendent Dr. Chris Kilbride was on hand to accept the donation in the lobby of DePaul Hospital.  

“Thank you to our community partners at SSM DePaul Hospital for this generous donation,” Kilbride said. “These supplies will be a tremendous support for our students in the classroom as we work to reach and teach Every Ritenour Student, Every Day.”   

The school supplies will be given to students throughout the school year by school counselors and social workers.
