The Silver Spring Neighborhood Center, 5460 N. 64th St., distributed backpacks filled with school supplies to children who live in the Westlawn housing development and the surrounding community to help get their school year off to a good start.
“We are streamlining and strengthening our current programs to create a “conception to career” pipeline so that all children have a shot at success. Providing children with school supplies is just one way we can help kids succeed,” said Anthony McHenry, executive director of Silver Spring Neighborhood Center. The backpacks and school supplies are provided, in part, by a collaboration between U.S. Bank and Schoolhouse Supplies, a nonprofit organization.Did you like this story? Subscribe to NNS today.
