Gaithersburg, August 24, 2010 – The Montgomery County Young Republicans presented the Linkages to Learning with backpack donations concluding the “Equip the County’s Future” backpack drive. A group fundraiser aimed at producing fully equipped and supplied backpacks for the children involved with the local Learning Center that provides support to children and parents who require a little extra.
“Our members are pleased to present the Linkages to Learning with backpacks for the students in support of the Center’s great work in our community,” said Montgomery County Young Republicans President Michael Gibble. “We unequivocally support ‘Equipping our County’s Future’ business and civic leaders with the tools required to succeed in their current educational endeavors. Since we started this initiative earlier this summer, we have been able to share the great work the Center does with the community. We hope this encourages more groups to get involved with Linkages for Learning who promotes steadfast commitment to family and learning.”
In the past two years, the dozens of backpacks collected by the MCYR’s have helped benefit the Linkages for Learning students as they proceed into the next school year.
