OPERATION BACKPACK: CENTRIC BRANDS PARTNERS WITH WHEDCO TO DONATE SCHOOL SUPPLIES
September 30, 2021
To kick off the beginning of the school year, Centric Brands partnered with The Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDco) to donate back-to-school supplies to students in the South Bronx.
The donation included over 300 new backpacks, school supplies and over 200 pieces of children’s outerwear, pants, and shirts. The items were distributed to students enrolled in WHEDco’s After School and Extended Day programs, as well as to children served by their Home-based Childcare Program.
Centric Brands is proud to continue to partner with WHEDco and support children and families across New York. As we head into the holiday season, check back for new updates on our philanthropic efforts and how we continue to make an impact in the communities where we do business.
