Shoreline Rotarians, including their special guests and exchange students, gathered at Ridgecrest Elementary School in Shoreline early Wednesday morning, August 21, 2019, to pack school supplies into backpacks for kids coming back to school.

The school backpack program was launched nearly eight years ago by a consortium of School District, YMCA and Hopelink staff to give a head start to students in need.

This year, Rotarians packed over 200 of the backpacks with binders, notebook paper, pencils and other necessities. 

In total, backpacks will be given to more than 1000 youngsters.
