On behalf of the Junior Woman’s Club of Verona, I would like to thank the community for supporting our recent backpack and school supply drive for needy families in Verona. Due to the overwhelming generosity of the community and our partnership with Abdallah Khetir, Walgreens-Verona store manager, we were able to give 28 filled backpacks to our town’s Health & Social Services Program Coordinator, Connie Pifher. There was a backpack for every child who needed one! We’re very thankful to everyone involved in making our “Packs with Purpose” initiative successful.

Sincerely,
Kristen Donohue, President of the Verona Juniors
Lorri Caffrey
Federation Secretary, Junior Woman’s Club of Verona
