A big thank you to everyone who donated their time, money, and school supplies to the YWCA Backpack Drive! School supplies were a challenge to purchase in bulk this year, but we successfully filled 128 new backpacks, which will be given to students living in the YWCA’s emergency, transitional, and affordable family housing. Additionally, we had over $4,000 left over, and we are talking to the YWCA on how to best use this money to serve their community. A special thanks to everyone who helped assemble backpacks on August 14 and 15, especially Lauren Kaplus and her enthusiastic children Emmeline, Noah, Samuel, and Jarett!
