Lewisville Morning Rotary members partner with Pedi-Place to deliver fully fully school supply stocked backpacks for eight of their 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade patients.
Some PediPlace patient families are unable to afford the back-to-school supplies for this school year. In July PediPlace reached out to local organizations such as ours to provide donated school supplies for their patients whose families could not afford the $40 to $75 cost of each child's school supply list. Our club members provided enough donations and we shopped for enough school supplies to assure that 8 of their patients have everything they need for this school year.
At our September 1st meeting, we took a few minutes to form an assembly line to stock each of the backpacks with notebook paper, scissors, crayons, Elmer's glue, construction paper, spiral notebooks, folders with pockets and brads, markers, glue sticks, erasers and a box of #2pencils.
After our meeting we delivered the stocked backpacks to PediPlace
Many thanks to members Richard Malcolm and Mark Smith for sourcing and shopping for all these materials.
