Harrisburg local organization helps school district kids get ready for school
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Students in the Harrisburg School District prepare to return to school. And the local organization Loop B&G organized its annual donation of free school supplies.
Loop B&G has partnered with the Henry Howard Day Tennant Association to help parents purchase school supplies and backpacks.
Students in the Harrisburg School District prepare for classroom learning after participating in virtual instruction throughout the 2020-2021 school year.
Organizers say they hope Sunday’s campaign will help provide children with the tools they need to be successful in the coming school year.
“Certainly during this time, especially during COVID, there is a bit of financial strain, especially in this community,” said Loop B&G President Melisa Burnett. “We don’t always have the resources, so they’re always grateful to have this annual back-to-school event.
Loop B&G says its community partners, including Faulkner Subaru and volunteers, contribute to the success of their annual school supply distribution.
