LESA’s “Backpacks for Kids” Project
The Livingston Educational Service Agency (LESA) held its annual “Backpacks for Kids” project in August 2012. The goal of this project is to provide Livingston County students whose families are experiencing financial difficulties with basic school supplies at no cost.
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 2012 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.
