Community Donates 1,848 Stocked Backpacks Through Annual School Supply Drive
While we're all nervous about the coming school year and the many support systems needed for our families, we're proud to share that our community came together to donate over $50,000, translating to 1,848 fully stocked backpacks through our annual School Supply Drive!
"It feels like something so small that we can easily take for granted, yet it has such a huge impact," shares Nichole Davis, Beverly-Hanks Realtors, who helped lead a team drive raising 80 backpacks to support this year's School Supply Drive. This year's drive would not be possible without the support of our presenting sponsor Bank of America, whose team has been active as volunteers and community partners in this work for several years.
Many thanks to everyone who donated online, held a virtual team drive, and volunteered to pack and sort the donated items into backpacks for our distribution partners to pick up. Learn more about this year's drive and distribution partners HERE.
