CROWN HEIGHTS -

Crown Heights nursing home residents are giving back to the young people in their community.

Two people from Allure Group's Linden Center came to P.S. 289 Tuesday for a donation event, giving hundreds of backpacks and school supplies to elementary school students.

Over 60 students at the school live in temporary housing and have been coming to school without the supplies they need.

The school hopes to continue a partnership with the Linden Center.
