3RD ANNUAL OPERATION BACKPACK PROGRAM HITS MILESTONE
August 23, 2023
The 3rd annual Centric Cares Operation Backpack program brought associates together across our New York and Greensboro offices to pack and deliver over 700 backpacks for students in preparation for the upcoming school year.
New York associates worked with Delivering Good to partner with Cherry Kids, Inc., a local community partner based in East Harlem, that provides after school and summer programs for students in the New York area. Associates assembled backpacks in the office, decorated cards to celebrate the start of the school year and delivered the backpacks to Cherry Kids, Inc. alongside the Delivering Good team.
Greensboro associates partnered with Backpack Beginnings, a local non-profit that delivers child-centric services, and the Jet Black Empowerment Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to empower the less fortunate. Associates worked with the Backpack Beginnings team to stuff backpacks with school supplies and prepare them for distribution and our RISE (Representation. Inclusion. Support. Empowerment.) Employee Resource Group attended the Jet Black Empowerment Back to School Community Fun Day to distribute backpacks to students in the Greensboro area.
