Family Resource Center's Backpack Giveaway Event

On Thursday, September 9th, thanks to East Ramapo Central School District's amazing Family Resource Center Coordinators, along with our many sponsors including The Salvation Army, The Town of Ramapo Police Department, and Costco, 1,000 FREE backpacks filled with school supplies, as well as 300 food bags were distributed to members of our community.
Families drove through, walked up, and rode their bikes to the fun outdoor giveaway event, and our cheerful Family Resource Coordinators (FRCs) were on site with sponsors to provide the items into the grateful hands of our family members. Our new Superintendent Dr. Clarence Ellis stopped by to thank the sponsors and meet some more community members. A wonderful way to start the school year!
