This June the Caleb and Calder Sloan’s Awesome Foundation hosted a backpack stuffing event at this year’s Promax Conference, where attendees stuffed 2,500 backpacks full of school supplies for our students. The event was organized by the Sydney Paige Foundation, who sourced the backpacks and supplies and set up the event. A huge thank you to everyone involved, especially the School on Wheels volunteers and staff who helped unpack, unload, and reload the thousands of backpacks and school supplies – no easy task.
A special shout out to US Storage Centers – they reached out to us around community partnerships they wanted to build in anticipation of the opening of their new Compton location and the timing couldn’t have been better. The storage units they provided at their La Crescenta location for these backpacks was offered just in the nick of time. We are so happy to partner with an organization that supports our mission to provide children the educational support they need!
We can’t wait to start distributing these awesome backpacks full of supplies to our students for the start of a new school year!
