Starting school without the tools needed to succeed can put big obstacles in a developing child’s way.
All children should be able to start off the school year with the confidence and the passion to get down to business and learn and nothing says confidence like having a new backpack full of shiny new essentials to help get the job done, which is something that Cradles to Crayons knows well.
This past Friday, the Anthem team as well as over a thousand volunteers from corporate organizations came together with Cradles to Crayons for their 11th annual Backpack-A-Thon to help their Ready for School initiative.
We packed and distributed backpacks filled with new school supplies, helping students excel in their classes from an early age as well as KidPacks filled with shoes, clothing, and more, to ensure that children arrive at school on the first day prepared and excited to learn!
It was an incredible event for an amazing cause and the Anthem team was very proud to be a part of it!
