KINGSHILL — A St. Croix senator teamed up with a Florida-based educational foundation so that local children could get needed school supplies before the start of the school year.

“Thank you for making this past Saturday’s event a great success!” James said on Twitter. “I partnered with the Hope for N.E.S.T. Foundation to supply our community with book bags and other goodies. It was a pleasure to giveback to our youth in such a fun and meaningful way.”
The Hope for N.E.S.T. Foundation is based out of Davenport, Florida, according to its Facebook page.
