CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Volunteers from Huntington Bank joined the officers and staff of The Salvation Army on Thursday to distribute backpacks to low-income children in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
For the third straight year, The Salvation Army is partnering with Huntington Bank to provide backpacks and school supplies to area children in need. “Project Backpack” has been made possible through the generosity of Huntington Bank, which is supplying the backpacks at no charge. Also, Huntington Bank has worked with additional partners and the community to collect school supplies being placed in the backpacks.
Three-hundred backpacks were given out at Salvation Army facilities in downtown Cincinnati, Price Hill and Newport. The backpacks and school supplies were offered to school-age children in low-income families on a first-come, first-served basis.
