Piato’s Café will Donate Backpacks Again


URBANA IL – 100 backpacks filled with school supplies was the site at Piato's Café in Urbana last year for students in need. This year they hope to do it again, but bigger. Head Chief Kelly Jo Lamb wants 300 hundred backpacks to be filled. She has been working hard too, getting everything a child needs from notebooks to crayons, and scissors.

To make sure they reach their goal, Piato's will have a buffet on Thursday, August 9th for $5 dollars, from 11am – 2pm. All money raised from the buffet will go towards supplies and backpacks for those in need.

If you would like more information, or to help volunteer handing out the backpacks please contact Kelly Jo Lamb at 217-344-9025
