I used to despise back-to-school shopping when I was a kid. I wonder why I was so excited when the opportunity presented itself this year; maybe it had to do with the fact that I wasn’t going back to school myself, just doing the shopping! Thanks to generous donations from Arrowstreet staff, we were able to donate several backpacks full of much-needed supplies to The East End House Back to School drive right before the start of the 2011 school year. We are happy to be participating in the backpack drive to help local students whose families would otherwise struggle to purchase them.
