Backpacks Full of Hope Presentation This Wednesday
This coming Wednesday, Manny Ortega and Espi Briones, two iLEAD Schools coordinators, will be at our campus to explain Backpacks Full of Hope to our facilitators, parents, and learners. They will also sell snacks and drinks in effort to kickstart fund-raising for their upcoming service trip to Puerto Rico. Send a couple dollars with your learners to make purchases during their recesses!
This trip to Puerto Rico is open to learners, parents, and staff. Two years ago, Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, decimating the U.S. territory. As the country continues to rebuild, iLEAD learners and their families are preparing for their third Backpacks Full of Hope humanitarian aid trip to the island in late March 2020. There is an itinerary already created for the 2020 trip, which they will be happy to discuss with everyone interested.
If you cannot stop by to see them Wednesday, please email email@example.com with your contact info and questions. We will be in touch with you personally!
