The 16th Annual Back-To-School Bookbag EXPO, run by the Meriden Firefighters Local 1148, was held on the Meriden Green from 10am-1pm. 1000 bookbags, each stuffed with grade-appropriate school supplies, were distributed to Meriden neediest schoolchildren. First Congregational Church of Meriden through its Christian Outreach Committee donated $2110, which when combined with donations from Center Congregational Church which partners with us in this project, put our combined churches in the Salutatorian Level of giving, the highest level.
