Love in a Backpack – Thank You and Photos

bags_herschelWhat an amazing community!!! 

On the morning of Saturday, October 14th more than 50 volunteers showed up at the Kent Middle School Multi-Purpose room and stuffed more than 275 backpacks  with donated blankets, toothpaste/brushes, coloring books, crayons, stuffies, pajamas and so much more. We here at the KSPTA are overwhelmed by the amazing generosity and support of so many people, thank you is not enough.

See below for the visual story of this amazing day:
