The Rotary Club of Salisbury, the Salisbury Sunrise Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Wicomico County extend their sincere thanks to the people of the Delmarva Peninsula. The service clubs, with the generous support of the local community, collected three full shopping carts of school supplies for the 2015 “Back to School Backpack Project” for deserving children at the Salisbury Kmart on Saturday, August 8.
Rotarians will soon stuff 600 backpacks with school supplies including spiral binders, pencils, paper and glue sticks; all items that were donated over the past month.
On Saturday, August 22, backpacks will be given away to deserving children at the Christian Shelter, 334 Barclay Street in Salisbury.
Any family with a child in need of a backpack for the new school year but without the funds to make that purchase is invited to attend. The backpack giveaway is scheduled from 9:30 until 10:30 a.m. or while supplies last. A parent must accompany the child to receive a backpack.
