The Livingston Educational Service Agency (LESA) is gearing up for the 15th annual “Backpacks for Kids” project. The goal of this project is to provide Livingston County students whose families are experiencing financial difficulties with basic school supplies at no cost.
Last year over 1,000 Livingston County students received backpacks filled with basic school supplies. Livingston County residents were very generous in their support of this project. Donations were received from individuals, local businesses and community groups.
We welcome donations for the 2016 LESA “Backpacks for Kids” project. You may drop off items or monetary donations at the Livingston Educational Service Agency, located at 1425 W. Grand River Avenue, in Howell, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. throughout the summer.
For a list of collection sites, please visit our website:www.livingstonesa.org and click on Parents & Community. If your organization is interested in becoming a collection site, please contact Judy Paulsen at email@example.com.
The distribution date is August 18, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. at the LESA Education Center. Our Connect for Kids event will run the same day starting at 5:00 p.m.
