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.
