Camden students receive new backpacks and school supplies
Children from Virtua's CASTLE (Children Achieving Success through Therapeutic Life Experiences) program received new backpacks filled with school supplies. More than 100 backpacks were distributed to children ranging in age from 5 to 15.
The children selected the backpack they wanted and were delighted to find all new supplies inside. This annual event always inspires Virtua employees to contribute to help provide a fresh start to the school year.
The CASTLE program is located within Virtua Camden and provides services to children living in Camden and surrounding communities.
