[Jamestown, NY] – Jamestown High School recently benefited from some community love with a donation from the youth group at REALiFE Church. Their youth representatives delivered numerous backpacks to the school that were filled with toiletries, snacks and other items that students may need. Each backpack also contained a handwritten note to encourage a student who might be going through a tough time.
“We’ve been distributing the backpacks to students who are in need or new to the district,” said JHS School Counselor Ashley Noon. “We are very appreciative of this generous gesture to our students.”
The church’s youth group wanted to show love by doing something positive in support of the City of Jamestown and its residents. They decided to fill backpacks with items that some residents may need. This is a small gesture that they hope will have an impact. Along with JHS donation, backpacks were also delivered to Washington and Jefferson Middle Schools, the UCAN City Mission and Chautauqua Mental Health.
