Backpacking Event a Success
East Hampton resident Jill Bodian, Sag Harbor resident Karen Kleinman and Mindy Richenstein and Lisa Silverman, of Sagaponack, led the UJA-Federation Supplies for Success backpacking event on August 23 at the Ross School in Bridgehampton to ensure that 2,200 kids in need across the East End start school with the tools needed for confidence and learning.
Schools and organizations picked up their requested backpacks for distribution before school starts, including LIGALY, Bridgehampton Childcare and Recreation Center, the East Hampton School District and the Southampton School District, with a handful of backpacks available for those in need at the offices of The Sag Harbor Express. For information on how to obtain one of those backpacks, please email editor Kathryn G. Menu at email@example.com.
