AARP Rhode Island (AARP RI) is proud to once again sponsor the annual Back to School Celebration now in its 20th year. The program engages hundreds of volunteers in preparing and packing close to 16,000 backpacks for children in need filled with school supplies on two assembly days (Friday, July 26th and Saturday, July 27th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.).
On Saturday, August 17th, the backpacks will be distributed via 12 locations throughout Rhode Island. Various organizations will host tables at the locations to welcome the children and their families and provide important information. AARP RI will host a table at two (2) locations - Newport and Providence - from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Come and volunteer for one or two assembly days and/or help to manage the AARP RI resource table in Newport or Providence. We look forward to you joining us!
