Community of Friends has launched their annual Back-to-School Backpack and School Supplies Drive. If you would like to sponsor a student-in-need by purchasing a new backpack and school supplies, there are still plenty of unsponsored children left. You can stop by Mud Puddle Toys (1 Pleasant Street, Marblehead) and select a tag for a specific child. These children come from either the Marblehead Food Pantry or Friends and Children Services of Greater Lynn (FCS). FCS is an after school program that provides the students a safe, controlled environment.
We are asking that all backpacks be returned this weekend, Sep 1-2, in order for us to get the backpacks to the children by Tuesday, Sep 4th. For any questions, you can contact John Wilder at 781-639-3664 or email@example.com.
Drop-off locations include: Mud Puddle Toys, LVO YMCA, Raveis Real Estate, Marblehead Bank. Also in need of 3 & 5 subject spiral notebooks.
