LESA Backpacks for Kids report 2010

LESA Secretary to the Superintendent Judy Paulsen reported the LESA Backpacks for Kids 2010 project put together 1600 backpacks filled with supplies for Livingston County students in grades K-12 whose families need help to finance their back-to-school supplies. Paulsen said every one of 1000 students who attended the Aug. 19 distribution received filled backpacks.

"It's awesome to know we're helping people, and to see the excitement of kids and parents and volunteers," Paulsen said.

Students may still stop by LESA today for a backpack. After today, the extra packs will be sent to local districts, OLSHA, and LACASA for distribution according to need. This year, for the first time, LESA provided 50 backpacks to Livingston County's The Connection Youth Services.

Thanks to all Pencil Box Club members and fans who supported this very special project!
