YARMOUTH — For the second year in a row, 16-year-old Hannah Dwyer is wrapping up the summer by collecting school supplies for the Community Backpack Project.
The goal of the program is to provide backpacks filled with school supplies to students in need in kindergarten and first grade at William H. Rowe School and in second through fourth grades at Yarmouth Elementary School. The program accepts contributions of any size and amount, from pencils, erasers, glue sticks, and backpacks to monetary donations.
Donations of backpacks or supplies can be dropped off in the parking area in front of Yarmouth High School from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15, or 10-11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 26.
Those who would like a backpack for their child or know someone who would benefit should contact the YES or Rowe School guidance or principal’s office.
