Tri-County United Way has partnered with The Post-Star and Nemer Ford to support the Kids with Packs program. This program supplies backpacks to children in need every year.
For the 22-23 school year, 75 backpacks filled with school supplies were given to Queensbury Elementary School, accepted by QES Principal Jessica Rossetti.
Queensbury Elementary students can pick up backpacks at Kindergarten Orientation or at the upcoming Meet and Greet. If families previously requested a backpack, they can also pick them up from the K-3 office starting on 8/30.
Across the Tri-County area, according to their website, Kids with Packs provided 671 backpacks to 12 local school districts, including schools in Corinth, Fort Ann, Fort Edward, Glens Falls CSD, Glens Falls Abraham Wing, Granville, Greenwich, Hudson Falls, Queensbury, South Glens Falls, Warrensburg, Whitehall and the YMCA.
