Backpacks for the Homeless

The Key Club undertook a new project this year: Backpacks for the Homeless. Students, faculty, and staff donated both backpacks and the items to be put inside them.

The project, led by Academic Dean Mr. Ruiz, was a great success. Students sorted the donations, and on December 21, they delivered 42 backpacks filled with assorted toiletries, gloves, scarves, hats, and socks to the First Congregational Church in East Longmeadow, MA. The bags were then distributed by the church to homeless individuals who participated in the holiday dinner the church provides annually on Christmas Eve.

Thank you to all who took part in the project!
