Backpack Initiative: Schroeder Industries

Backpack initiativeSpecial Thank you to Schroeder Industries for successfully collecting an overabundance of nonperishable food items for the Backpack Initiative! The Backpack Initiative is a NEW program the Development Team is launching within companies organization wide! It was introduced to us by Mike and Julie McMullen. Mike is a new Pressley Ridge Board Member. The Backpack Initiative provides healthy eating options for Pressley Ridge kids. Targeted companies ask their employees to donate non-perishable food items over a designated time span. Pressley Ridge kids and company volunteers meet at the end of the initiative to inventory and stuff the “backpacks.” The first group of Pressley Ridge kids who will benefit are our Foster Care Youth in Cumberland, Maryland and Day School Pittsburgh Students.
