Our Greenville, South Carolina team was proud to participate in the 2018 School Tools campaign, run by United Way of Greenville County (read their wrap-up here). We partnered with companies, churches, and community groups to donate over 3,000 backpacks filled with school supplies for children in need in the Greenville area. Multi-Pack Solutions team members across all three production shifts, as well as office staff, volunteered to sponsor school bags. Sponsoring a bag included purchasing the needed supplies for one child in a given grade. The company contributed supplies to each sponsored bag as well. Between these items and our team members’ contributions, we filled 55 bags with supplies this year! Many of our team members donated extra supplies as well.
Some of our team also assisted the United Way with distributing these bags to the community. We shared community resource information with families and also helped them carry their new supplies out.
This was a great opportunity for our Greenville team to give a little back to our community. We look forward to continuing our volunteering tradition.
