Kiwanians implement Project Backpack Featured

The Ohio Kiwanis’ Project Backpack provides backpacks to children in all 88 of Ohio's counties to Children's Service Departments for when children are removed from their homes on an emergency basis. Ohio District Kiwanis First Lady Cheryl Snellgrove has made this her year-long project. The backpacks are filled with personal items such as toothbrush, tooth paste, comfort bears, small blankets and other items, depending upon the need of each county.
