Build a backpack at Wellesley Free Library to give back to community; Cradles to Crayons in Linden Square

Jewish Family Services of Metrowest invites you to come build a backpack as a way to give back to the community at the start of the new school year.

On August 27th at the Wellesley Library families can bring a new backpack to donate to the community.  Now, this isn’t just a donation drop off, families can “shop” the room for school supplies choosing the gender and age of who they want their pack to go to.  JFS will then donate these filled backpacks to Metrowest families helping low-income students start the school year off right.  Finish off your summer with a feel good project that makes a difference in someone’s life.

Event Details:

August 27th, 9:30a-11:30a

Wellesley Library, Wakelin Room
