Backpack Drive Does Best Yet!
This year was our biggest backpack drive ever! With your support, along with some great community partners, this years drive was able to raise over $15,000 and donate 3,413 backpacks to area organizations, such as Touching Miami with Love, Chapman Partnership, Communities in Schools and Miami Childrens Initiative, among others.
This drive, lead by our Angels Everywhere team was a 5 week drive that culminated in our annual backpack day where over 60 volunteers assembled the backpacks filled with supplies for area youth.
To help achieve their large goal, community partners: USI, IGT Media Holdings and Citi Private Bank Latin America held drives in their offices to contribute. As well, Turnberry Associates and City National Bank ensured this years success by each donating over 1,000 backpacks to the drive! A huge thank you to our community partners by making this possible.
