This afternoon when we showed up at Samuel W. Tucker Elementary School, the staff who greeted us were all smiles. Grace Church of Alexandria had the joy of dropping off 30,000 sheets of paper to help the school handle a paper shortage from budget cuts. “This will probably last us through Spring Break,” exclaimed one staff member.

We are immensely grateful for the privilege of meeting for worship at Samuel W. Tucker Elementary, where we have been gathering on Sundays for 8 years–since 2008. The teachers and staff who serve our children in West End Alexandria are doing a stellar job, and the donation of paper is just one way of saying to them, “Thank you!”
