Once again, the East Providence/Seekonk Rotary Club partnered with the Bridgepoint Christian Church for a Backpack fair at the East Providence High School.
Supplies lists for each grade at all of the public elementary schools in East Providence were provided by the School Department.  With donated funds, the supplies were purchased and distributed to over 800 elementary students from East Providence.  In addition to the loaded backpacks, local hairdresser volunteers provided 175 haircuts.  The event was well organized and ran smoothly, with an Assistant Superintendent and several teachers, as well as several Rotary volunteers helping out.
