Thanks for "Stuffing"

To our wonderful Stuff the Backpack donors,

Thank you so much for your contribution to our 2016 Backpack Campaign!  Through your generosity, we were able to provide over 580 backpacks to children in need throughout New Hanover, Pender, and Onslow counties!  We can tell you from personal experience that your donation has gone a long way and will make a true impact on Our Kids' academic success.  Just last week, Miss Mackenzie had the incredible opportunity to witness a rising first grader burst into joyful tears at the sight of her new bag.  This little girl then proceeded to pull out each and every item and proclaim her excitement for her blue pencil sharpener, pink scissors, and puppy folders.  It is because of moments like this that we do what we do, and we cannot thankyou enough for helping make that possible.

Again, from everyone at the Brigade, thank you for giving Our Kids the chance to succeed this school year, and for the rest of their lives!  Make sure to like us on Facebook and visit our website for pictures and updates of the backpack collection and distribution!

Sincerely, Mackenzie Hopkins (Development Assistant), and Cindy Anzalotti (Director of Development and Communications) Brigade Boys & Girls Club
