WEST ORANGE, NJ — West Orange Rotary continued its charitable efforts with donations of backpacks to Kelly and Redwood elementary schools on Aug. 21. Held at Redwood, Principal Tim Beaumont, acting Assistant Principal Kimya Jackson and Kelly Principal Joanne Pollara were on hand to greet families and help the Rotarians.

Students were able to select a backpack of their choice in assorted colors and styles. Each backpack was filled with school supplies for the students. By the looks on their faces, students were thrilled to receive them and thanked Rotary members for their generosity.

West Orange Rotary has long supported the school district. Each year every third-grade student receives a dictionary, and every year the Rotary provides thousands of dollars in scholarships to graduating seniors. The club is actively involved in the West Orange community and supports humanitarian efforts worldwide.
