Creche continues its long tradition of helping children in the Jamestown area. This year 44 backpacks were filled with school supplies and distributed to nine area elementary and middle schools by the organization's Special Projects Committee. Generous members of Creche donated most of the backpacks and school supplies. Other organizations that contributed to this 10-year-old Creche program were Court Appointed Special Advocates and both Brooklyn Square and North Main Street Community Banks. Creche has funded countless special projects such as this one for children in the community during its 112-year history.
