SALISBURY, Md. - With school just right around the corner, it's time to go shopping for supplies, and three Salisbury rotary clubs are reaching out to help those in need.
They've been working hard to collect donations for their annual "Back to School Backpack Project." They tell us this year has been the most successful yet. Tonight, they teamed up with local boy scout and girl scout troops and spent hours stuffing more than 600 backpacks with school supplies.
"There's a lot of need in the community, and we feel if we can help children, then it's something that benefits the community and the children," Salisbury Rotary Club president Hugh Livingston said. "It feels nice to do this to help out people who are in need," boy scout Joshua Robinson.
They'll distribute the backpacks this Saturday at the Christian Shelter in Salisbury from 9:30 to 10:30 AM or until supplies last. So make sure you get there early, and you must bring your child with you to receive a backpack.
