Nearly two dozen containers of school supplies were recently donated to  The Matthew Freeman Foundation: Pens and Paper for Peace.

The supplies were donations from students from St. Peter the Apostle Catholic School in Savannah and both campuses of Savannah Christian Preparatory School and were sent out to two military units in Afghanistan to give to schools and children there.

Since the foundation was established, more than 4 tons of school supplies have been collected for distribution to children in war-torn countries
