Backpack Deadline Is Tuesday
August 29, 2011 by WLKM
The White Pigeon Township Library is issuing a reminder that the deadline to turn in donations to support its seventh annual Operation Backpack program is noon Tuesday.
Starting at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, volunteers will work in an assembly-line manner and fill backpacks with school supplies. Items being sought by the library include glue sticks, pencil boxes, spiral and composition notebooks, scissors, erasers, crayons, pencils and colored pencils.
Items may be dropped off at the library’s circulation desk.
Perri Saunders, library director, said she hopes to fill 80 to 90 backpacks, which will be distributed to students at White Pigeon schools on the first day of class in two weeks.
