This morning several volunteers and students are pitching in for United Way of Hendrick’s County Backpack Attack.
Each and every year, United Way of Central Indiana in Hendricks County rallies together a team of outstanding companies and churches to collect school supplies for children from low income families. Back-to-school time is a bank buster for families, second only to Christmas. In our county, just over twenty percent of public school children qualify for free and reduced lunches.
All BackPack Attack supplies collected are counted, sorted by Hendricks County volunteers and distributed to all Hendricks County public elementary schools. Our partner companies, civic groups, faith based organizations and individuals want kids to start school on an equal footing with their peers.
