The Northborough Moms and Tots and Northborough Helping Hands Association, Inc.’s Fifth Annual Backpack and School Supplies Drive was a huge success for the 2012-2013 school year. The effort was able to donate 35 backpacks to students in need in the Northborough Public Schools to start their new school year.
