We were excited to partner with the Kids in Need Foundation to host four backpack-building events in 2017. Throughout these events, attendees filled a total of 1,600 backpacks for students in St. Cloud, Minnesota; Charlotte, North Carolina; Portland, Oregon; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The backpacks went to local elementary schools and to Affiliate Resource Centers of the Kids In Need Foundation for distribution.
In December at the Association of Minnesota Counties conference, attendees assembled 425 backpacks for students in need. The backpacks were donated to a local elementary school in St. Cloud!
