Pack Your Back would like to thank the Mott Community College Pipeline 2 Promise program for volunteering with the organization. This group of 25+ students assisted the organization in cleaning and organizing the Pack Your Back storage units on August 2nd. The students included in this program represent Carman-Ainsworth Schools, Bentley Schools, and Beecher Schools.
The Pipeline 2 Promise program was created to provide coaching at all levels of k-12 education to foster an environment that educates students on the positive outcomes of postsecondary education.
Thank you for all of the help!
On July 27th, Pack Your Back distributed 260 backpacks filled with school supplies at the Fresh Flint Festival that took place at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center in Flint, Michigan. Josie Born, Assistant Director of Pack Your Back, stated that the event went over well and that it was great to see so many students getting the resources they need to be successful in the classroom.
The Fresh Flint Festival is a two-day event filled with fun activities to support Flint residents while promoting fitness and healthy living as a means to mitigate the effects of lead poisoning.
