From our friends at the LaMorinda Sun comes this news of an upcoming backpack and school supply drive:
The Moraga Youth Involement Committee is holding a backpack drive all month to collect backpacks as donations. The backpacks will be given to students fourth grade and younger whose families can’t afford to purchase a new backpack.
The drive is taking place at Moraga’s Parks and Recreation office at the Hacienda de las Flores, located at 2100 Donald Drive. Donations will be accepted through the end of the month on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
In addition to backpacks, new school supplies can also be donated, which will be put into the backpacks for the students.
The backpacks will be donated to students throughout the county through the nonprofit organization, Shelter, Inc.
