Great news! 1873 backpacks collected
The Livingston Educational Service Agency assembled 1873 backpacks filled with school supplies for its eighth “Backpacks for Kids” project. This is an increase over the 1200 backpacks filled last year. The great response from donors will allow LESA to host another backpack distribution tonight (Wednesday) from 6-8 p.m. at LESA, 1425 W. Grand River Avenue, Howell, MI. LESA distributed 930 backpacks at their first distribution date last week, and today more students in grades K-12 can take advantage of "Backpacks for Kids" available to all families who welcome assistance with back-to-school expenses. Extra backpacks will be distributed year round through LACASA and OLSHA. For more information, call LESA at 517-546-6833.
