Almost $15,000 raised for Backpack effort

In an overwhelming response to an appeal for funding for the Rotary Backpack program, $14,750 has been donated in the last two weeks to the program.

“This is far and above what we expected,”  Marie Latortue, coordinator of the program for the Mount Vernon Rotary, said Monday. For more information, see the Nov. 7 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
