Sen. Barbara L'Italien with a Sack Pack

(Editor's Note: the following information was published by the office of State Senator Barbara L’Italien.)

The Office of State Senator Barbara L’Italien is supplying sack packs containing school supplies to students in need in the 2nd Essex and Middlesex District this back-to-school season.

The colorful drawstring bags contain essential items including pens, pencils, erasers, and crayons. The bags themselves can be used to ferry books and supplies from home to school.

“Perennially, back-to-school season is a financially stressful time of year for many families,” said State Senator Barbara L’Italien. “A package like this can considerably ease that burden, and prepare a child for a new year of education feeling equipped and secure. If you work with or are the parent of a student in need, don’t hesitate to contact my office. We want to reach those students and families who are the most in need, who might not otherwise receive this assistance.”

Please contact Senator L’Italien’s District Aide, Maria De La Cruz, at [email protected] to request a sack pack.

The Office of State Senator Barbara L’Italien would like to thank the National Foundation for Women Legislators and Office Depot for supplying the packs, and the Massachusetts Caucus of Women Legislators for organizing this program.
