Backpacks for Success 2012 Another Success!

 

The Junior Welfare League of Huntington, teamed with The Town of Huntington, has completed another great year of Backpacks for Success.  Low-income families with school age children are invited to request free backpacks filled with all the supplies needed for their grade level.

 

The Junior Welfare League handled 123 backpacks in advance and another 12 on August 21, the day the bags were packed.  With help from our “daughter” organization, the JUNIOR Junior Welfare League, and from member’s children, the bags were packed with just the right supplies.  The Town of Huntington donated space for everything to be packed then distributed on the evening of August 22.

 

Value Drugs’ generous donation of 125 backpacks and Macy’s invaluable community grant for $1,500 allowed the program to move forward without a hitch.  Huntington Business Products Centre gave the League a greatly reduced rate for the purchase of the school supplies and many of our members and their friends and family contributed with supplies, backpacks, and donations.  The program was truly an example of the community giving back to the community—a success for all involved!
