School Supply Donation Drive: Blessings in a Backpack


The Community Council is thrilled to partner with Blessings in a Backpack at the Agassiz School in Lakeview. Blessings in a Backpack provides food for 50 elementary students on the free lunch program to take home on the weekend. In addition to the food we will provide to the students to take home with them over the weekend, we would like to give them some school supplies to start the year off!

Supplies needed: Pencils, Crayons, Glue sticks, Rulers, Pencil-top erasers.
