The Livingston Educational Service Agency (LESA) holds its annual “Backpacks for Kids” project in August each year. The goal of this project is to provide  Livingston County students whose families are experiencing financial difficulties with basic school supplies at no cost.


Again this year, over 1,000 Livingston County students received backpacks filled with basic school supplies. Livingston County residents were very generous in their support of this project.  Donations were received from individuals, local businesses, and community groups. We continue to accept donations of supplies and backpacks at the LESA Education Center.  If you prefer, cash donations are also welcome. If making a cash donation, please make your check or money order payable to LESA and drop it off or mail it to LESA Backpacks for Kids, 1425 W. Grand River Avenue, Howell, MI  48843.
