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!
SCHOOL SUPPLY Items Needed:
Water color paints
Pocket folders Clorox wipes
Monetary donations are also needed and accepted.
I will be collecting donations for this project through August 9th

Thank you to Armani McFarland, an 8-year old girl from Majestic
Elementary, who started a food drive herself and collected nearly 1,000
pounds of food for local food pantries in the last month! She is a kind
girl who is always thinking of others before herself. We are so
appreciative of her hard work and giving heart. Again, thank you and
thank you to all the folks who donated to Armani's food drive!
