Avalon Students Receive Backpacks Filled With School Supplies
Each student at Avalon Elementary received a backpack Tuesday filled with school supplies provided by Macomb Women for Kids.
Students at Avalon Elementary School will start the school year with new backpacks filled with school supplies provided by the Clinton Township-based Macomb Women for Kids.
Every school in Macomb County could apply to receive the backpacks from the all-volunteer organization of 10 women.
Avalon was selected from the schools which applied, and were distributed to students Tuesday during the beginning of the year picnic.
Virginia Bisby, president of Macomb Women for Kids, said Avalon was selected through the application letter and percentage of students who are part of the Federal Free Lunch program.
"It is truly overwhelming," said Jeanne Poleski, Avalon principal. "We couldn't be more grateful."
