La Puente’s Outreach Services is holding their 9th annual backpack drive to gather school supplies for children in Kindergarten through 12th grade and they need your help. A simple monetary donation of $5 can fill a backpack with the essential items children need to be successful. During the Drive they will also collect donations of backpacks, pencils, blue and black pens, lined paper, rulers, folders, notebooks, crayons, and colored pencils. If you have any school supplies to contribute, please feel free to drop them off at the Outreach Services Office, located at 929 State Ave. in Alamosa or contact La Puente Outreach Services to them pick up. Please help them reach their goal of 700 backpacks so that children can attend school with the tools they need to be successful students. They will personally distribute backpacks, filled with schools supplies, in three locations throughout the Valley.
For questions, please call Callie Adams at 719-587-3781 ext. 213. Distribution of backpacks will take place on Friday, August 17. Dates, places and times will be announced one week prior to distribution.
