Backpacks For Success Dear JWL Members and Friends: For the past three years, we have assisted the Town of Huntington with an extremely important program that impacts hundreds of local children: Backpacks for Success. The initiative provides local students from kindergarten through college with the supplies they need to start the school year off on a positive note. Statistics show that children who go to school with a positive attitude and prepared for class have a far better chance of succeeding. The Junior Welfare League, as part of its steadfast commitment to the families of Huntington who need our support and assistance, believe we should once again rally behind this program to ensure all goals are met. The concept is very simple: we need to fill approximately 170 backpacks with school supplies. CA, Inc of Long Island has graciously donated the backpacks, so all we need to do is collect the necessary supplies and assemble the backpacks.

There are three ways you can participate:

“Adopt” a Student – simply email sbroshek@lmco-ny.com and you will receive a list of supplies needed to fill a backpack. We will tell you the grade and gender of the child you are helping. o This is a great family project that helps children likes ours – fortunate to be a part of loving and blessed families – to appreciate that this is not the case for everyone. o It’s a great group effort -- pass this along to co-workers or to post in your place of employment o All supplies are needed by August 19th. o Delivery/drop-off instructions will be distributed in the email with your supply list Contribute to our Cause – we are happy to shop on your behalf. Donations should be sent to Junior Welfare League, PO Box 107, Huntington, NY 11743. Check should be made out to Junior Welfare League of Huntington, Inc. We are a 501c(3). So we can shop as needed, all donations must be received by Monday, August 16th. The third way to participate may be the most important – our strength is in the numbers – PLEASE FORWARD THIS INVITATION TO HELP TO YOUR ADDRESS BOOK, FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Post it on Facebook and other social networking sites. We need your help to make this a success. We know this is the height of vacation season, so getting the word out to many is critical!

In advance, thank you for your generosity and kindness.

If you have any questions, email is at jrwelfareleague@yahoo.com or sbroshek@lmco-ny.com Regards, Susan M. Broshek - Junior Welfare League
