Backpack & Coat Drive Success Driven by Partnerships
Nov 04, 2016

This fall we were able to distribute 850 backpacks filled with school supplies thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Ford Motor Company Fund. The backpacks, which were filled with the help of volunteers from Zaman, Ford Volunteer Corps, and Ally Financial interns, were given to our client families, local schools, and partner organizations, including Oakland International Academy, Murphy Performance Academy, Greater Grace Temple and Operation Refuge.

 

This week we were also able to distribute 200 brand new coats to our client families along with hats, gloves, and other winter accessories. This was made possible by our generous donors and volunteers. 

 
We would like to thank all of the many people who came out to prepare, pack, and support the distribution of school supplies and new winter coats to our client families and partners.
