PARSIPPANY — Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany Community Director Carol Tiesi, Kiwanis Club member Nicolas Limanov and President Frank Cahill visited Parsippany Health and Human Services and donated backpacks filled with school supplies. Each backpack is valued at $100.00.

Normally each year Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany members purchase and donate school supplies that are given to Health and Human Services to be distributed to families in need.  But due to COVID-19, and our meetings have been virtual so Ms. Tiesi decided to purchase the backpacks filled with supplies to keep up with the Kiwanis tradition.
