MFF provided a record 52 backpacks to the town Welfare Department for its Project Backpack.
This is the eighth time that Merrimack Friends and Families has participated in the project. This year, the club supplied kids entering kindergarten through high school-age with various items, from pencils and crayons to calculators and scissors. The backpacks are donated to children in the community in need to help ease the financial burden of parents.
