Members scour discount stores all year for big bargains on kid-sized backpacks and school supplies. On an evening in late August, many hands make quick work of stuffing the supplies into backpacks which are delivered to Portland public schools with the greatest number of children from low-income families. Our volunteers enjoy attending school open houses to help all kindergarteners choose a new backpack and discover the pencils, scissors and markers inside.
