Many grateful thanks to our wonderful community partners who help us do this each year for our kids, including Infinite Energy, Tower Hill Insurance, Preservation & Enhancement District (through Alachua County), Abundant Grace Community Church, our wonderful teachers from Hidden Oak, Terwilliger, and Chiles, and our individual donors who like to support our annual backpack event. Blackadder Brewing Company is also still collecting supplies, and they will help us finish strong so we can get every child on our waitlist a backpack and school supplies before the first day of school. Finally, a million thanks to our friends at Partnership for Strong Families and especially our SWAG Family Resource Center Manager, Amanda Elliott. Couldn’t do it without you, lady!
This is one of our favorite events because it’s all about the kids. The smiles are the reward.
