TriCon backpack collection aids Lowell students

August 24, 2023

Concord’s Trinitarian Congregational Church collected backpacks and school supplies for the hundreds of Lowell students between kindergarten and eighth grade who are living in temporary housing and shelters or are unhoused.
As they enter a new school year in less than ideal circumstances, and with caregivers who may not be able to afford a back-to-school shopping trip, the congregation offered support. Parishioners dropped off a total of 91 backpacks filled with crayons, pencils, markers, glue sticks, notebooks and more.

TriCon’s Social Action Committee organized the drive, made sure each backpack had supplies in it, loaded up their cars and delivered all 91 packs to the Lowell Salvation Army on August 15.
