Backpack Distribution Day
Saturday August 27th, 12pm – 2pm

Staff and volunteers will distribute backpacks, back-to-school supplies, and safety/hygienic essentials to local families of underserved children. “With many families in our service area continuing to struggle to make ends meet, we felt it was imperative to offer backpacks and school supplies at no cost for their children,” said Lee Eastbourne, Jonnycake Center of Westerly Executive Director. The 2022 School Supply Giveaway is made possible through a partnership with Wood River Health Services, Back to School Celebration of Rhode Island, Opening Doors for Westerly’s Children, and Washington Trust.
