2011 Drive for School Supplies

Lake Travis is a very generous community. The proof was once again evidenced by another extremely successful “PackaBackpack” School Supplies Drive benefiting LTISD. In just 3 short weeks donations far exceeded expectations and as a result, more than 300 students received supplies their families could not afford to purchase. Backpacks, pens, pencils, paper, folders, crayons, markers, glue sticks… etc. came pouring in through the doors of 6 wonderful businesses who offered to be collection sites for this project. Thank you Elite Wellness, Strandz Salon, American Bank, Hillcrest Bank, Bee Waxed Skin Care Spa and the Lakeway Spine Center for welcoming our bins and the donations of the residents of the greater Lake Travis area. Some folks chose to make cash donations to LTlov to be used toward the purchase of additional supplies. Thank you for your trust. Your generosity made it possible for LTlov to purchase 7 new graphing calculators that were presented to the Lake Travis High School Library for use in their calculator lending program. LTHS librarian, Elizabeth Stearns, was thrilled to be able to make so many additional calculators available to students who do not have access to the funds necessary for such an expensive, but necessary learning tool. 2011 “PackaBackpack” Chair, Fionnuala Stockton, summed it up by saying, “It really was incredible to see the way people responded to the needs of our children and our schools! It’s great that so many kids will have a new backpack and supplies for school this year and all through the generosity of the Lake Travis community. Thank you!”
