Today, the Abbott House, a care provider for foster and adopted children, gave away new backpacks to 400 children in their services.
"This saved me from buying a backpack," said Meva Newbold (above), "It has been a big help."
Her newly adopted daughter, Natasha (also above), is equally excited about her starch new backpack, courtesy of "Friends and Family Together." "I love it," said Natasha.
Giving away backpacks is only one of the numerous services that the Abbott House provides. During the school year, children can receive tutoring, counseling, medicine and more. "We have to keep the families happy," said Dr. Luis Rodriguez, the Senior Vice President of the Abbott House, "our families need as much support as possible."
