CHESTERTOWN — This month, For All Seasons Behavioral Health and Rape Crisis Center gave away 1,000 backpacks on the Mid-Shore, according to a news release.

The outreach replaced the block party held at For All Seasons office in Easton last year, where neighborhood children received a backpack and school supplies while participating in a community event.

Due to social distancing requirements this year, backpacks were distributed to the Neighborhood Service Center and Tilghman Area Youth Association in Talbot County, Kent County Social Action Committee for Racial Justice, Queen Anne’s County Public Schools, Caroline County Recreation and Parks and Dorchester County Public Schools.

These organizations then distributed the backpacks to children at risk in all five counties, the release states. Each county received 200 backpacks.

Backpacks included a notebook, For All Seasons pencils, earbuds and informational materials on mental health services in Spanish and English.

For All Seasons also donated 1,000 pencils to each of the five school systems.
