Holbrook, NY- August 27, 2014 - Legislator Bill Lindsay III recently wrapped up his successful summer school supply drive in coordination with the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless (LICH) to ensure that those in need have the resources necessary to succeed inside the classroom. Lindsay’s office collections came from residents and local organizations who donated hundreds of supplies including backpacks, folders, notebooks, binders, notepads, rulers, pens, pencils, crayons, and calculators. The LICH is a non-profit organization that aims to eliminate homelessness and provide tools and resources to those in need by hosting events like “Backpack Pirates,” a yearly school supply drive throughout Long Island.
 
“Backpack Pirates is an outstanding program that works to give students the proper tools to succeed in school and in life,” said Lindsay III. “I am very grateful that our community came together to donate hundreds of school supplies to this great cause.”
 
Backpack Pirates, is designed to help students in need throughout local communities by providing them with school supplies and the opportunity for some summer fun. On August 26th,the LICH hosted their annual Backpack Pirates summer camp event for youths in need. The students enjoyed a fun-filled day of activities before receiving a backpack filled with various school essentials.
