Back to School Supplies/Backpacks Project: This is a community service project for school children from low-income families. These new backpacks loaded with school supplies will alleviate some of the peer pressure experienced by these children. Too many children in our community are falling behind in school and life before they even get started. This will help them with their self-esteem, creativity and confidence. Every member in the club will be involved either purchasing the supplies, backpacks or filling the back packs, writing personal notes of encouragement to the distribution of the backpacks to the children. Items to be provided include backpacks, pens, pencils, note pads, calculators, rulers, erasers, markers, spiral notebooks, etc. Project to begin approximately 8/1/23, with distribution and project completion by 10/31/23
