Lenny's Donates 24 Backpacks Stuffed with School Supplies to Local Families in Need
WILLISTON, VT - In an effort to help local families gear their kids up for back to school, Lenny's Shoe & Apparel has donated 24 backpacks stuffed with school supplies to area school districts.
Williston Central School, St. Albans City School, Barre City Elementary and Middle School and Barre Town Middle and Elementary School were all recipients of the backpacks. Each school is responsible for selecting the children most in need to receive the donations.
"When I started contacting our sales reps to tell them about our Stuff the Backpack event, the response was tremendous," said Heidi Agan, Co-Manager at Lenny's in Williston. "We received backpacks from The North Face, Life Is Good, Chooze, Columbia, Keen, Adidas, and High Sierra; along with water bottles from Avex. The generosity of our brand partners helped make this event a huge success."
Lenny's customers donated $1 to stuff the backpacks with back to school basics including pencils, notebooks, binders, scissors, crayons and markers.
