“Wow! What a great community we live in,” stated Rhonda Davidson, Director of the Charlestown Parks and Recreation Department.
Last Saturday, July 28 the Charlestown Parks and Recreation Department sponsored the 4th annual “Back to School Bash” Backpack giveaway.
“We gave away over 400 backpacks to Charlestown kids in need. The remainder will be distributed to the schools for kids in need after the kids go back on August 8. I can’t tell you enough how overwhelming it is to see these businesses and organizations lined up and ready to greet our kids with school supplies and other items needed to help their school year get off to a great start. Thank You to all of our Community Partners for supporting our Parks Department but thank you most of all for helping us make Charlestown the best place to live and raise a family.
