Backpack drive

Laura helped choose all the items to go in a backpack for the United Way’s backpack/school supplies drive.  We were assigned a little boy and had to shop for everything in his list.  Last night was the drop-off party.

 First we wrote notes of encouragement to our student: 
Then we out the backpack, our notes, and a few other supplies into big plastic bags and dropped them in the bins.  

There was popcorn and ice cream, and a chance to see lots of activities that would be found in a typical United Way “Bright Beginnings” classroom.  Laura had fun checking out all the stations.
