Guam - The ISLA Backpack Project is back! The Island Success Through Learning Association is giving free backpacks full of school supplies to students receiving free or reduced lunch at southern elementary schools. Isla president Len Stohr said, "It has everything they really need to go to school. The backpack, composition books, scissors, crayons, pencils, pens, glue - everything that a child needs."

Stohr spoke to the Rotary Club of Guam today asking for monetary donations. A total of $11,000 needs to be raised to reach the targeted 1,700 backpacks. To make a donation to the Backpack Project, call Stohr at 929-0768 or visit IslandSuccess.org. Eligible students will receive letters to pick up their free backpacks the first week of school.
