The Livingston Educational Service Agency (LESA) will hold its annual “Backpacks for Kids” project in August 2014. The goal of this project is to provide  Livingston County students whose families are experiencing financial difficulties with basic school supplies at no cost.


Last year, over 1,100 Livingston County students received backpacks filled with basic school supplies. Livingston County residents were very generous in their support of this project.  Donations were received from individuals, local businesses, and community groups. We are now accepting donations for the 2014-2015 school year at the LESA Education Center. Additional drop off sites will be determined soon. If you prefer, cash donations are also welcome. If making a cash donation, please make your check or money order payable to LESA and mail it to LESA Backpacks for Kids, 1425 W. Grand River Avenue, Howell, MI  48843. Distribution of backpacks will take place August 21, 2014 from 6-8 p.m.
