Last week, BIC Graphic NA delivered a donation of over 55,000 items to the Marjorie’s Hope organization to benefit students at Pasco County Schools. The contribution included a variety of backpacks, pens, and ear buds which will be used as school supplies.
“I am so excited that Marjorie’s Hope will be able to help so many children in need when we fill more than 3,000 backpacks this July,” said Deborah Shackowsky, founder of Marjorie’s Hope. “I simply have no words for the kindness that surrounds us on so many levels.”
Marjorie’s Hope is located in New Port Richey, FL and provides children a strong foundation for a happy and successful life by meeting needs for educational supplies, toys and other necessities. The organization has been helping local students through their Back to School Program for 18 years.
“We are thrilled to work with a local foundation like Marjorie’s Hope, and especially pleased to provide supplies for students in our community,” said Melissa Ralston, BIC Graphic NA chief marketing officer. “At BIC Graphic we strive to leave a positive, lasting memory and hope this donation will help students worry less so they can focus on learning more when school begins in the fall.”
The 3,000+ backpacks are scheduled to be filled on Saturday, July 27 by nearly 400 Marjorie’s Hope volunteers.
