Amanda Ng continued her brother Alex Ng’s annual backpack drive for Pleasant City Elementary School. Each summer, the Ngs go on their social media sites and ask for gently used backpacks with some new supplies to bring to the school. The student donation coordinator then distributes the backpacks to students who are seen carrying their books in shopping bags. This year, she enlisted a little help from neighbor and kindergarten student Jessica Pescatore. Pescatore has always looked up to Amanda and is being groomed to take over when she leaves for college in six years.
