Donate Items to Lancaster Kiwanis Club – Project Backpack!

The Junior Leadership Club would like to ask for your help in supporting the Kiwanis’ Project Backpack. 

Project Backpack’s goal is to provide a string backpack filled with personal items to each child removed from their home on an emergency basis by Children’s Protective Services. The Lancaster Kiwanis Club has been participating in this project since 2012 in order to fill backpacks that are given out to children in Fairfield County CPS.

The Junior Leaders are working to collect items that can be used to fill the backpacks. Some suggestions are:

-Coloring Books, Crayons, Art Supplies

-Small Toys, Small Stuffed Animals

-Books, Journals

-Hygiene Items: Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Shampoo or Body Wash

Please bring only new items into the Extension Office and give them to our office staff by February 28th. If you have any committees or groups that are meeting before the end of the month, please feel free to share this information.
