There is a severe shortage of school supplies throughout the nation and several children from shortage of supplies in their learning environments.
This incredible program is a great way to make a difference within your community. This incredible part of the program has the teams put together a stocked backpacks that will be delivered to underprivileged schools.
School Packs are backpacks that your team will fill with school supplies, toys and toiletries to be donated to children getting ready to back to school. The backpacks can also include a personalized note of encouragement to the child receiving the.
The backpacks contain items that most children need to start the year: paper, notebooks, highlighters, markers, crayons, hand sanitizer, tissue, lotion, note cards, glue sticks… (items can be changed if desired)
In many of the local schools backpacks are distributed throughout the school year because of the changing populations in the schools. My of the lower income schools have a constant of students. The backpacks will provide some financial relief to the children’s parents.
Additionally, team members will design personal hand crafted notes for the recipient of the backpack.
We will partner with local schools at the site of your event and at the end of the program, a representative from the benefiting school will be present to accept the donation and thank the group for their teamwork.
This is a very popular, very rewarding event that will have a lasting effect on your team for years to come.
Any leftover materials and supplies will be donated to Treasures For Teachers, a local charity whose mission is to give needed school supplies directly to teachers.
The program will start with a fun interactive trivia game similar to “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” The interactive game will utilize audience response keypads for the team interaction. Once the game is complete the top team will be the first through the supply line.
In the team format the backpacks will be placed in the middle of the table where the cards of encouragement and backpacks will be decorated.
Or we can have the participants move through the assemble line to fill the packs.
The program can be completed in less than 90 minutes.
