The Penquis Back- to- School program is in full swing and we need your help!

The Penquis Back- to- School program “We’ve Got Your Back” is in full swing and we need your help! Approximately 1,500 school-aged children are requesting help with backpacks this year.  We are still short about 500 backpacks to meet our goal.

 A backpack is a needed back to school item, yet it is also one of the more expensive. Many families are struggling to make ends meet and the backpack may be the only NEW item some children will have when they return to school.

We are hearing from grandparents raising children on a limited income, single parents trying to support their families, but are out of work because of a serious illness or a recent layoff.  Your donation is appreciated by parents, grandparents and the children. It is wonderful to live in a community where businesses, individuals and media partners come together to help area children and families.
