Roller girls start backpack drive
Paradise Roller Girls will host a backpack donation drive to support local children in the foster care system during its first home match from 3:30-8 p.m. May 5 at AfookChinen Civic Auditorium.
East Hawaii’s roller derby league is asking the Hilo community for contributions of gently used backpacks, luggage, booster seats and car seats.
“We wanted to find a way our community could contribute in a positive way,” said Paradise Roller Girls member Alison Wagner. “These children are dealing with difficult circumstances, and this is one small way we can improve the situation.”
PRG will deliver donations to Catholic Charities Families Resources Program for distribution. For more information, email email@example.com.
