Nonprofit organization donates 340 backpacks to Youngstown students

The backpacks were distributed to students Thursday.

YOUNGSTOWN — A New Castle, Pa.-based nonprofit organization donated 340 backpacks to Taft Elementary School — more than enough for every Taft student.

Brian Rice of Son of the City delivered the backpacks Wednesday, and they were distributed to students Thursday.

Rice and Son of the City work with the Ronnie Alexander Memorial Trust in New Castle to provide help to the community by donating supplies to children and families.

The donated backpacks came in a variety of colors and styles to appeal to both boys and girls.
