Our group supports the local Backpacks for Kids project that distributes free backpacks and supplies to kids returning to school. Please help us support this project.
From LESA: We implemented this project in 2002 and through support of local businesses and families have distributed over 3700 backpacks filled with supplies. Our goal is to distribute at least 1500 backpacks for the 2009/2010 school year. Distribution will take place on August 20, 2009 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at LESA, 1425 W. Grand River Avenue, Howell, MI 48855. (Volunteers will fill the backpacks this year on August 19, but donations of funds are accepted year 'round.)
