Malden Housing Families Annual Backpack Drive

Posted by

  

Mayor Gary Christenson recently visited Housing Families, a Malden-based agency that works to end family homelessness, and dropped off backpacks for their Annual Backpack Drive. The Agency is collecting new backpacks and school supplies for children at-risk of or experiencing homelessness. As Housing Families expects to be helping twice the number of children this year, they hope to receive 800 backpacks for the children enrolled in their programs. The new backpacks filled with school supplies will be distributed to students to ensure a great start in the new school year. For information about the Annual Backpack Drive, please contact pkelly@housingfamilies.org.
