Church donates filled backpacks to Sudlersville Middle
Fifty backpacks filled with school supplies, from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, were recently donated to Sudlersville Middle School. From left: Elders Tanner Allred of Linden, Utah, and Malachi Enman of Upalco, Utah, deliver the backpacks to guidance secretary Karla Altamirana, Sudlersville Middle School Principal Rob Watkins and front office secretary Lindsay Coleman. The backpacks were collected from the 11 different congregations in the LDS Annapolis Stake, which includes Kent Island, originally for Afghan refugee children coming to Maryland. However, the number of backpacks far exceeded refugee Afghan children’s needs locally and excess was sent to area schools in need.
