The 3rd annual NLRPD backpack/tennis shoe event will be held on Saturday, August 14th, 10am, at Shoe Carnival in Lakewood Village. 50 NLR children will receive a backpack full of school supplies, along with a $50.00 Shoe Carnival gift card to purchase a pair of shoes for back to school. There is an account ( "NLRPD back to school account " ) open at Centennial Bank. Donations of any type of school supplies would be beneficial for this event. Also, as many as 10 officers are needed for this event. Officers would assist a child in choosing a pair of shoes, which would take 30 minutes. Safelite Auto Glass will be grilling hot dogs at the event, and providing drinks as well. The event last year was lots of fun! Please email me, or call me at 580-6959, if you are interested in donating school supplies or shopping with a child. Thank You.
As a NLR School Board member, I can assure you there are many kids in our schools who need these types of programs to succeed in school. If you and group’s members can help with this program, you can make real difference in a child’s life.
