6K Bookbags & 1 SUV!
This is what it looks like when you fill a Nissan Rogue to the capacity with bookbags filled with school supplies for homeless kids; barely room for the driver! Fortunately I wasn’t the only driver so there were not quite 6,000 in there, but there were A LOT! We are so proud of our involvement in the 21st Annual Back2School Book Bag and Supply Drive for Children’s Restoration Network, a local charity that helps fight the vicious cycle of homelessness among Atlanta’s youth. This year was a huge success! We helped transport hundreds of those bags from collection sites throughout the city. Read this from CRN:
Due to your involvement, homeless children will be stepping off the school bus in style with all of the necessary supplies to learn. The campaign was such a success we were able to stock pile enough new and filled book bags to insure that as children leave the shelters and new children come in during the school year, we will be able to also give them a new and filled book bag.
