Backpack for Kids

Posted on September 30, 2014 by Lisa Gardner


We had a very successful backpack drive this year.  We were able to provide 102 backpacks and 20 sets of extra school supplies for the children in our community. We received referrals for children in need from the programs,  Got Your Back Shack,  Delton Summer Fun and Soups On.  Gun Lake Community Church graciously donated 20 backpacks filled with school supplies.   It was an emotional night for some parents as they explained that their children had to use paper sacks to carry their school supplies to school for years.  The Orangeville Community Outreach would like to thank each and everyone of you who participated in the Backpack Program and to all who graciously donated backpacks and supplies. Your support makes a huge impact on our community.
