Queen Anne’s Umbrella Tree is collecting 45 new or like-new backpacks and other school supplies through Aug. 15 for Northwest Center Kids’ programs.

The “adopted” backpacks — to be distributed to preschoolers, elementary-age students and high schoolers — will include lists of needed supplies.

The backpacks can be dropped off at Twirl Café (2111 Queen Anne Ave. N.), weekdays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and at Eat Local (2400 Queen Anne Ave. N.), daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
