COVID has dealt us many challenges in the last 18 months, but one of them has been a noted decrease in opportunities to serve our community of Kent, Washington. We were so happy when one of our members brought us the idea of putting together backpacks of school supplies for kids in the greater Kent area who might need a helping hand in preparing for the new school year.
After collecting supplies from our members and others in the community, we gathered this past week to put together the backpacks. This past Saturday, we were able to distribute these from the Kent Senior Center.
We had a few extra and were so happy to be able to pass them along to another backpack giveaway later this month so that even more kids will have the opportunity to take advantage of this option.
Happy Back to School time!
