Suitland, MD (August 29, 2017): Andrews Federal Credit Union’s Enola Thaboun, Springfield Branch Manager, along with several other volunteers, collected and filled more than 70 backpacks as part of Rotary NXT Club of West Springfield’s Backpack Service Project.

Backpacks were distributed via the Lorton Community Action Center (LCAC) for first to sixth grade children from local low income families.  

This was truly an outstanding representation of Rotarians doing good things in the world, said Ralph Menzel, President Rotary Club of West Springfield. “We can take pride in knowing that our service project of supplying those back packs will go a long way in helping the LCAC achieve its goal of providing school supplies to 500+ children as they head back to school.”
