Loveland, Ohio – Who doesn’t remember being a kid and you get the fresh new box of crayons, Terri Carter answered when I asked her why the LIFE Food Pantry does their Back to School Backpack Drive each year. She continued, “It’s a new start. It’s a new year. It’s a new backpack filled with supplies.”

It’s early, but it’s never too early to help Loveland Area children be ready to head to their first day of Fall classes. You can help them go back with the same things and confident attitude that their more affluent classmates will have. Terri explains why in the interview.

Carolina Maurer added, “With dignity. With new school things.”

Terri is the President of the food pantry and Carolina coordinates their back-to-school program. I spoke to both today at the food pantry in Shoppers Haven to find out what they are doing and how you can help. I’m pretty sure after watching them answer questions, you will be willing to pitch in.
