I am 1 of 12 Red Sox Kid Nation Captains and we need your help with an awesome project to help other kids!
Under the direction of The Red Sox Foundation and through the support of HP Hood, the 12 Red Sox Kid Nation Captains will participate in sixth grade backpack-a-thon. The Kid Nation Captains are collecting items to fill backpacks for more than 3,000 kids going into middle school and some of those backpacks will be donated to kids right here in Lynn, who need them. Hood is donating the backpacks but we need to collect the items to fill them. If you are willing to have a drive where you work or at an organization you belong to please let me know. Please consider donating any of the items listed below in any quantity. Donations are tax deductible. All donations must be received prior to Aug. 15 because on Aug. 16 we will be filling the backpacks at Fenway.
