Backpack project has many hands

Every year for the past 14 years, the local community has responded to the needs of low-income and homeless children in providing school supplies. The Opportunity Council recently completed its annual Back Pack Project. To date, 375 students have received backpacks and school supplies. The North Whidbey Lions Club is always the first to offer their services and without them we could not accomplish this project.
Thank you for your willingness to take this on every year. Thank you also to United Way and the Day of Caring Volunteers. A special thanks to Francis and the Oak Harbor School District for the bus. Numerous community members contributed including Alaska USA, Thrive Community Fitness, Windermere Oak Harbor, Whidberry Frozen Yogurt, TOPS, Soroptimist Oak Harbor, Oak Harbor Cham-ber of Commerce,Whidbey Presbyterian, Oak Harbor United Methodist, Church of Christ and Christian Reformed. There were countless others who dropped off supplies at our office. Thank you to all for making this a success and giving children the ability to start school prepared. We appreciate each and every one!
