CSA, Assistance League deliver backpacks to needy students

Thanks to the generosity of the Assistance League of Los Altos, Community Services Agency of Mountain View and Los Altos (CSA) have distributed 277 backpacks filled with school supplies and back-to-school shoes to children of families hit hard by the continued sluggish economy.

Nancy Jelincich, Coordinator of the Operation School Bell Project, said, "Despite the challenging fund-raising climate, the Assistance League was committed to meeting the increased need for back-to-school supplies this year. It is critical that in these difficult economic times children have the tools to prepare them to take on the challenges of the classroom."

CSA officials offered appeciation to the Assistance League for their continued support of this project. "Having supplies just like the other children helps the kids fit in socially and builds their self esteem, which in turn makes them eager to learn," said Maureen Wadiak, CSA associate director.

This year, Nuasis Corporation and Cooligy Inc., two Mountain View-based companies, joined the Assistance League of Los Altos, adding 40 additional backpacks filled with school supplies to help prepare children for a successful academic year.

This combined effort among the Assistance League of Los Altos, Nuasis Corporation and Cooligy Inc. enabled CSA to serve an additional 40 children, which is a 25 percent increase in the number of children served last year.
