Members of Chapter 20075, Mesa, Arizona, collected and donated backpacks filled with school supplies to Pedro Guerrero Elementary, Mesa, to brighten students’ lives.
The Principal of Pedro Guerrero Elementary, Brian Minarcik, shared with Royal Neighbors, "As I was walking down the hall today, I saw a 4th grade student struggling with his backpack." Minarcik stopped to help him and the student asked, "Do you by any chance have a new backpack? Mine keeps breaking."
Minarcik told the student he was the perfect person to ask because new backpacks were delivered to his room yesterday. The student picked out a backpack of his choice. "He was so excited!" exclaimed Minarcik. "We wrote his name on it. He wanted all of the tags left on as well so his mom would know that it was brand new."
Due to the generosity of Chapter 20075, many students were able to take home a new backpack full of school supplies – a truly unforgettable gift!
