Lo­cal youth in need get sup­plies for back to school

Nor'wester (Springdale) - - EDITORIAL -

Back­packs for Kids 2017 helped 63 lo­cal youth re­turn to school with the sup­plies they needed this year.

Bell pro­vided the back­packs and Cop­per­belt Pi­o­neers part­nered with com­mu­nity groups and lo­cal con­trib­u­tors to fill the 63 back­packs. Vol­un­teers dis­trib­uted them to chil­dren in schools from Tri­ton to La Scie.

Along with lo­cal per­sonal do­na­tions, groups like Spring­dale Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Co­op­er­a­tive, Spring­dale Lions Club, Pros­per­ity Wealth, Nobles Tim­br­mart, Green Bay Search and Res­cue, Green Bay Rod and Gun Club, and Baie Verte Kins­men made this project pos­si­ble again this year. Dave Snow of the Ground Search and Res­cue and Green Bay Rod and Gun, Daisy Baker of the Cop­per­belt Club, By­ron Noble of Nobles Tim­br­mart, and Dick Ox­ford of the Spring­dale Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Co­op­er­a­tive with school sup­plies and a back­pack.
