2011 UTTF Backpack Drive

Thank you to all of those who donated, volunteered and supported the 2011 Backpack Drive. For the second year the Under the Tree Foundation teamed with the Holy Family Youth Group and delivered 50 backpacks filled with school supplies. In addition, Reebok generously donated backpacks, socks, headbands and sandals which were welcome items for the summer season. A highlight of this effort was the ice cream party enjoyed by the volunteers and our friends at the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester.

Many volunteers showed up to lend a hand in packing the Backpacks filled with school supplies for the 2011 Backpack Drive.

The highlight of the Backpack Drive was the ice cream party enjoyed by the volunteers and our friends at the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester the day the backpacks were delivered.

Holy Family | Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester | Under the Tree FoundationDear Holy Family,

Thank you very much for visiting us here at Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester. The children LOVED the Ice Cream Social and meeting all of you. They were all very happily surprised when we received their backpacks filled with school supplies. Many parents called to thank you as well. Your generous donations will help our families in many ways.

Although the summer is just arriving, before we know it September will be here! September is a time of excitement and anticipation as the children get ready to start a new school year. It can also be a very stressful time because many of our families have to buy new clothes, shoes and school supplies. Your Backpack Project will allow our families to not have to worry about purchasing backpacks and school supplies and that means more than you can know.

The flip flops, socks and headbands were a “hit!” The kids were really happy to receive such nice gifts!

Thank you for your time, generosity, coordination, kindness and friendship. We hope you all have a wonderful summer!

Best Wishes,

Your Friends at Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester
