Central Maryland Students Receive Backpacks Full Of Supplies
Almost 100 volunteers spent the day at Van Bokkelen Elementary School in Severn Aug. 21 and at other school sites in central Maryland to fill donated backpacks with school supplies that were then handed over to grateful students participating in the United Way of Central Maryland's school supply drive. Approximately 50 area companies hosted school supply drives to help with the project.
An estimated 1,000 backpacks were donated to students at schools in Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Harford County, and Howard County. Approximately 650 school uniforms were purchased and donated, and 4,000 lunchboxes were provided by Under Armour.
