1,300 Area Students to get Backpacks

Building on their already successful “Backpacks for Kids” project, through which 900 backpacks were made available to needy students in the area last year, the Almaden Super Lions this year offered other clubs in the district the opportunity to purchase backpacks and supplies at their pricing. Several clubs availed themselves of the offer and dozens of volunteers gathered on Sunday morning, August 17th, to stuff the packs with the supplies and then took their orders back to their communities for distribution. This year, an additional 400 students will benefit from this great project. For more information or to get your club involved next year, contact Bob and Judy Froom (Almaden Super).

Almaden Super's growing pile, as the originating club, they distribute the Lion's Share of the 1,300 packs going out this year.
