22 years of providing backpacks to second graders
On August 22, the Brothers of Martinez Masonic Lodge #41 delivered over 500 backpacks filled with school supplies to all of the second graders in Martinez school district. The Masons also donated supplies to the teachers of those classes. Our schools are in desperate need of supplies, and we are trying to do our part to help fill that need.
At 8 a.m. our truck pulled up to Morello to start unloading and prepping for the big event – putting backpacks on the kids. Las Juntas was completed at 12:30 to finish this year’s donation.
