The Jones Library is pleased to serve as a collection point for Project Backpack 2014, a community outreach program of the Amherst Public Schools that provides new backpacks and school supplies to income-eligible students. A list of suggested items is found below.
Please bring your donation to the Children’s Room by August 1, to allow for distribution before school starts.
***There is a desperate need for larger backpacks for
students in grades 7 - 12.***
