Groton – Groton Human Services is seeking donations of backpacks and school supplies for the coming year to help children whose families are struggling.
The Back-to-School Backpack Program provides backpacks and supplies to children whose families are receiving public assistance and to those without additional money to prepare for the school year. The backpacks are distributed in mid-August, shortly before school starts.
Donated items are being sought for students in kindergarten through high school, and will be sorted by age. Donations may be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Groton Human Services, 2 Fort Hill Road.
