College of the Holy Cross students, Ryan Kingsley ’17 (black Shirt) of North Attleboro and Sean Teebagy ’17 (grey shirt) of Shrewsbury have started “Engage. Educate. Empower.” Both raised $1,000 to purchase, pack, and deliver 48 backpacks to elementary school students at Pernet Family Health Service’s after school program in Worcester on February 2, 2016. Charter TV-3 was on hand to cover the event. The program’s future plans include raising $5,000 by the fall of 2016 to provide 500 backpack bundles to Worcester public elementary schools.
