With school just around the corner, East County Rotarians were doing their best to set kids up for success and what better way than to make sure they have the supplies they need to be successful students.
 
This past week, the La Mesa Rotary Club got busy packing almost 100 backpacks with various supplies for kids going back to school. 
 
 
The Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club did something similar with a program called Buddy's Backpacks. Rotarians donated $620 plus supplies to help meet their club goal of 1,000 full backpacks for kids.  Rotarians will also help with putting bags together and with the distribution (more to come on this).
