My name is Armani, I am 9 years old and going to be a 4th grader at Majestic Elementary this year. It is important to kids to have a backpack and school supplies when they go back to school. It makes me sad to think of the kids that don’t get even have a backpack to use for school; some kids have to put their papers and school books in a plastic bag. So I have decided to try to help by doing a backpack and school supply drive. I will be taking donations from July 18th until August 9th. And I will be handing them out at Catholic Community Services Backpack Bonanza.
There’s no doubt about it.… times are tough! While many Utah families are stocking up on school supplies to head back to school, many in our community are struggling to prepare for the upcoming school year. Let’s do our part to help our neighbors, friends and family.
Please join me in helping kids who are in need!
