Back to School Backpacks
Back to School was a huge success again this year. Open Doors supplied a package of socks, underwear, a new t-shirt or top, a $20 Walmart shoe voucher, backpack, and specific grade level school supplies to approximately 200 Westfield students. An additional 75 filled backpacks were given to Student Impact and Westfield Youth Assistance by Corbin Bender, an Eagle Scout working with BTS for his scout service project. We were very blessed this year to have over 300 backpacks donated to Open Doors.
