Thousands of area students will be heading back to school equipped with brand new backpacks, new school supplies and plenty of snacks, thanks to MLT Outreach and McFarling Foods.
MLT Outreach (MLToutreach.org) held a Back-to-School Drive on Saturday, August 15 in the parking lot at Indianapolis Child Services, 4160 North Keystone Ave. The event was open to all area families, and provided thousands of brand new backpacks stuffed with school supplies (paper, pencils, folders, notebooks, re-usable water bottles, and more).
As part of their “Food Drop Friday” program, McFarling Foods donated the school supplies and of course, healthy and delicious snacks for all the backpacks.
“Every kid deserves a new backpack for school”, said Jason Acquisto, Marketing Manager at McFarling Foods. “We are so fortunate to partner with MLT Outreach, who organized and put on this great event.”
