Students at Bear Creek and Juniper Elementarys in Bend won't have to buy school supplies this year. The American Licorice Company, which makes Red Vines, donated $70,000 to pay for school supplies for the two school's students. Laurel Weiland with American Licorice, says this year, the company has doubled the funds it donates to their local communities. “We're focusing in Bend, Oregon, where are corporate offices are and in LaPorte, Indiana and Union City, California where we have manufacturing plants. We've identified the schools that have the highest number of kids in free and reduced lunch programs.” The free backpacks will be passed out at back to school barbecues at Juniper Elementary on August 31st and at Bear Creek on September 1st. Otherwise, kids can get the backpacks on the first day of school.
