Thanks to the dedicated supporters of Nandalala Mission’s 2010 Backpack Drive, we were able to meet our goal of donating 101 filled backpacks to high school students in the San Francisco Bay Area. This was a huge leap in vision, support, planning and execution, since we doubled our donation in 2009! We are so proud of and thankful to our student volunteers who did much of the shopping, fundraising and packing of the bags. We are extremely grateful for our sponsors, who have made it possible to offer Back-to-School assistance in the Los Angeles and New Jersey communities also this year. We hope this experience instills the values of compassion, caring and giving in all of you!
The folks at Family Giving Tree were pleasantly surprised when Nandalala Mission volunteers drove up with 101 backpacks for high schoolers. Stay tuned for continuing community service opportunities at Nandalala Mission.
