Evansville’s Young & Established Hosting Backpack Drive July 31st
Evansville-based youth mentoring organization, Young & Established, wants to make sure all Evansville students have the tools they need to succeed during the 2017-18 school year, and they need your help to make it happen.
The local non-profit, who works with kids of all ages to help them make the right choices and become active members of the community, will host a Backpack Drive on Monday, July 31st from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. at Central Library in downtown Evansville where students in need will receive brand new backpacks filled with school supplies. Students will also have the opportunity to sign up a library card, and receive information on Young & Established Need to Read Program which teaches students that reading is not only essential to learning, but fun as well.
