Today we presented our donation of $4,800 to Backpack Buddies at Victory Elementary School! Backpack Buddies provides children in need with backpacks filled with non-perishable food to eat over the weekends when school lunches aren’t available. Our chapter’s funds will provide food to these children for three months.
Isn’t it beautiful what a group of committed people can achieve? Our chapter was founded in February, and in three 30-minute meetings we have raised $12,500 for local charities!
On hand to receive our donation was Backpack Buddies founder Sally Crockett, VES PTO president and nominating chapter member Angela Cioletti, and principal of Victory Elementary Christopher Wray.
