Backpack Distribution, Kiwanis

LEWISTON - The LC Valley Kiwanis, an organization primarily focused on helping children, will be distributing backpacks for school aged children in the Staples parking lot on Monday, August 16, from 5:00 - 7:00pm, while supplies last.

This is the second year the local Kiwanis club has been able to sponsor this project thanks to support from a grant received from the Lewis-Clark Valley Healthcare Foundation. Other donors and partners in the project include Opportunities Unlimited, McCann Ranch & Livestock, Les Schwab Tire, local Kiwanis members and the Lewiston City Library.

Over three hundred backpacks with basic school supplies will be given away and those stopping by are asked to follow the traffic cones laid out.
