SANDPOINT — The Angels Over Sandpoint are preparing for their 16th annual Back to School event providing backpacks and school supplies to children in Bonner County. Over 2000 students in Bonner County participate in the Free and Reduced Lunch program; these are the students the Angels target to help the most.
The Angels’ goal is for at least 1000 children to be registered to receive school supplies and backpacks this year. Community support is vital in reaching this goal. Every dollar makes a difference since the program is administered by volunteers. Angels Over Sandpoint is a non-profit charitable service organization, donations are tax-deductible and those who donate will automatically receive a receipt for tax purposes. Please send your check to Angels Over Sandpoint BTS, P.O. Box 2369, Sandpoint, ID 83864.
The Angels work with Community Action Partnership to register families to participate in this program. Any family interested in receiving school supplies should contact the CAP office at 208-255-2910 to register by Aug. 16. Information on when and where to pick up the supplies will be given to the families when they register.
