Many thanks to all who attended and supported the JFS Build-a-Backpack events at the Wellesley Free Library and Framingham Public Library!

Dr. Stacy Scott, Superintendent of Framingham Public Schools with Build-a-Backpack donors.

Over two days, 160 attendees filled backpacks with school supplies, giving 200 disadvantaged students the tools they need to start the year off right – SUCCESS!

As one mom who comes every year said, "this is the highlight of our end of summer activities. Thank you JFS for providing an opportunity to show our children how to give back.”
