Five local primary schools have benefitted from the generosity of Lions Club of Tropical Gardens (LCTG).

With the help of Thorp Alberga, Foster’s Food Fair and Kirk Office Supplies, LCTG was able to provide 43 backpacks filled with essential school supplies to 9 primary schools for the new academic year.  This Back to School initiative is one of the club’s many projects, which are centered on youths.

LCTG contacted school principals and councilors with the offer of helping over 40 underprivileged students.

“Once the school had identified children that needed a helping hand we put together the backpacks and handed them out so the students would have everything they need for their first day at school. We wish we could have done more and we will certainly try to do more next year.” said Belinda Blessitt Vincent, President Lions Club of Tropical Gardens

The principals, parents and students expressed their thanks to the club and its partners on this initiative.

LCTG would also like to use this medium to thank Thorp Alberga, Fosters Food Fair and Kirk Office Supplies for partnering with us on this worthy venture.
