“Every year we try to make sure needy children in the district have the tools to begin the school year the right way,” says President James. “The Old Louisville Tavern is a great local business in our community and they are joining our efforts to achieve that goal.”

As part of the fundraising effort, The Old Louisville Tavern is donating 10% of all sales to the Backpack Giveaway on Wednesday. President James will be at the Old Louisville Tavern beginning at 7:00pm to collect any additional funds that patrons would like to donate for the program.

“Working with Councilman James to help kids prepare for school has been a great way to give back to the community,” Old Louisville Tavern Co-Owner Dan Borsch says.
