At our March 2, 2020 meeting we welcomed the Friends of EPBP, Tyler Williams (Club President), Mike Richmond (VP) and Tom & Anne Ziel.  They explained the positive impact they have achieved and how it benefits the students.
The Friends of EPBP began in November of 2016, it is a way to fill some of the needs of children in our local community. Some of their projects have included purchasing two AED devices, began a clothes closet for students at Lakers and supplying gifts (this past year, 30 students) so they can celebrate Christmas. One of the notable programs that they began is the Weekend Backpack program, where students receive a backpack filled with food on Fridays so that they have nourishment on the weekends. In the last three years, they have raised over $50,000 with all of it going back into the community.
