Merion's Community Service Committee is collecting new or gently used backpacks for children in foster care. Turning Points for Children's foster care program provides homes for over 500 children in the Philadelphia area. We'd love to help these kids start off the school year with a new backpack to call their own!
** Last call for backpacks will be at Back to School Night so we can get
them to the kids! Look for our bin outside the auditorium Thursday evening! **
Any questions, please contact: Carolyn Vachani (email@example.com) or Cicely Reece (firstname.lastname@example.org).
