About 70 school students in Chester City now have new backpacks and supplies for the new school year, thanks to a non-profit organization in Delaware County, Pa.

A group of people from India( odrf), who now live in Delaware County, coordinated the school supply collection along with the Community Baptist Church of Chester and a local state representative. Michael Thevar of the Omni Development Relief Fund ( explains why:

“We think that we should pay back to American society for having given us this beautiful opportunity to come to the US and work her and support our families, so we have made a commitment that we will collect whatever we can and support and do things for the inner city kids.”Thevar says many kids thanked them for the new backpacks and supplies, saying otherwise, they would have to use castoffs from older brothers and sisters.
