Backpacks For Middle School

Backpacks For Middle School
The Windsor Chamber of Commerce and First Town Downtown will be collecting backpacks for middle school students in Windsor. You can donate a backpack alone, a backpack with all the needed items, or a monetary donation and we will purchase the backpacks and supplies. The cost of the backpack with a majority of the items listed below is about $55. You can pick them up at at Ocean State Job Lot or Target right here in Windsor. Please drop off your check or backpacks at the Windsor Chamber office (261 Broad Street from 9am-12pm or 1-3pm) or you can bring them to the concert on the green.
