United Way's Backpack-a-thon for Cradles to Crayon Event at Lincoln Financial Center

Every year, our company participates in a big way for the United Way campaigns.  This year, there was a group of us who signed up to do the backpack-a-thon at the Lincoln Financial Center in Philadelphia, PA.  We had a great time, and in total, with all the corporations that participated, packed 22,000 backpacks full of school supplies for needy children.  A lot of companies donated the school items such as:  copy books, pencils, folders, sharpeners, pens, crayons, calculators, etc.  Our table packed 1,080 backpacks in about 2 hours.  WOW.  It was a fun event.  Here's some photographs of us:

Here we are packing the backpacks - assembly line, here we come!!!

Outside the door, here's a view of Lincoln Financial Field - Home of our Philadelphia Eagles.

A great day was had by all, especially knowing the great things we did for all those children.
