NORTH PORT — Sarasota County Commissioner Christine Robinson was among more than 30 volunteers gathered Monday for the Back Pack Angels’ stuffing more than 400 bags full of toiletries and other essentials bound for North Port’s homeless and needy children.
Volunteers spent two hours filling 436 bags with hundreds of items like toilet paper, soap, laundry detergent, toothbrushes and more at Patriot Self Storage on Talon Bay Drive, across from the Warm Mineral Springs entrance. The Back Pack Angels — aka the North Port Coalition for Homeless/Needy Children — have been helping the city’s homeless population for about four years. Bags are stuffed and distributed to children based on information the group receives from schools in the city.
