Like their counterparts in week 1, this week’s leaders received close support from JFS staff and volunteer intern, Zach Blankstein and were responsible for creating and executing a plan to collect school supplies and recruited a limited number of family and friends to fill 20 new backpacks at their individual events. Please enjoy photos from this week’s events led by: Jared Berger, Jacob Darish, Alexis Fridman, Eli Gaffin, Ben Gelber, Josie Happel, Ben Myers, B O’Donnell, Erica O’Donnell, Megan O’Donnell, and Hailey Rashes. Special thanks to our friends at The Rashi School in Dedham for their partnership, particularly Joni Fishman and Stephanie Rotsky.
The Build-a-Backpack event is part of JFS’s Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success (PAGES) programming, formerly Reducing Achievement Gaps (RAG). PAGES is a unique, multi-tiered program focused on addressing the academic, social, and basic assistance needs of low-income children of immigrant families in Framingham.
