Children in Need Get School Supplies

Some Lansing area children will be getting new backpacks and school supplies for the new year.

Volunteers of America and Delta Dental teamed up Thursday to provide school supplies to low income and homeless children.

528 backpacks were collected, each with some goodies from the dentist inside for kids who get them.

Terry Battaglieri from Delta Dental said, "We're gonna make sure that 528 children show up to school this year with backpacks that contain all the supplies they need to get them started off to a new school year."

The backpacks and supplies will be given to the VOA's hotel emergency lodging program and operation backpack. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
