Christian Brothers Services Donates Backpacks to Local Students

Romeoville, Ill., August, 2016 - Christian Brothers Services (CBS) donated approximately 30 backpacks filled with school supplies to St. Andrew School in Romeoville, Illinois. The backpacks and supplies are being shared with students in need. School Principal Carol Albreski expressed deep gratitude on behalf of the school, faculty and the families.
