It all added up for LTlov’s 4th annual “PackaBackpack” School Supplies Drive thanks to Lake Travis residents and businesses! Each year LTlov puts out a call for help on behalf of local families who cannot afford to send their children to school with the supplies they need to succeed. Our community’s resounding “Yes!” resulted in the most successful collection, to date, for LTlov projects and programs. Thanks to you, our children will not lack the materials necessary to the learning process. Thanks to you, teachers will not need to supplement from their own paychecks. Thanks to you, it added up beyond all expectations! In addition to the amazing amount of general supplies donated, our cash donations enabled the purchase of 42 flash drives for HBMS, 40 personal headsets for LTE and 15 graphing calculators for LTHS’ library lending program. A big cheer for Kevin and Pat from Best Buy at Bee Caves for all your help with these purchases! We are especially grateful to the businesses who hosted our collection bins and promoted “PackaBackpack:” World of Tennis and WOT Pilates, Sotheby’s, Elite Wellness, Strandz Salon, American Bank, Luxe Salon, Moreland Properties, Don Rucker Tire & Wheel, Bee Cave Family Chiropractic and Art Affair. Thank you, Kathleen Hassenfratz, LTISD Health and Social Programs Coordinator, for organizing the distribution of supplies to the individual campuses. May all of our students, teachers and administrators enjoy a success-filled school year.
