2 Pack a Backpack a Success! | News
BUFFALO, NY - 2 On Your Side teamed up with Walmart and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo again this year to help underprivileged kids return to school with all the supplies they need for a successful year.
Hundreds of people came out to donate school supplies Friday.
The Boys & Girls Clubs handle the distribution of the donated backpacks. You can contact the Boys & Girls Club of Buffalo at 825-1016 to inquire about eligibility.
Each family will need to fill out a School Supply Request Form, forms are available at all Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo and partnering agencies.
In response to viewer inquiry all School Supply Request Forms are compiled at the Babcock Street Clubhouse and cross referenced to aide as many children as possible without duplication.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo are also in need of volunteers to help unload, sort and pack the backpacks. If you are interested in helping, contact the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo at 825-1016.
Volunteers are needed this Saturday, Aug. 20th and Monday, Aug. 22nd - Wednesday, Aug. 24th.
School supplies that are collected in Lockport and Niagara Falls are distributed to children in both of those areas.
In Lockport, we partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters and in Niagara Falls we partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Niagara Falls.
