SBC Gives Back With Backpacks!

backpackThe Small Business Council of Rochester collected and distributed back-to- school backpacks to more than 600 children in need as part of the SBC Cares Backpack Give Back.

Backpacks donated by members were provided to the following organizations, who, in turn, distributed to the children they served:

  • Rochester Habitat for Humanity
  • Salvation Army
  • Mission Share
  • Volunteers of America (Camp Heroes Program)
  • Cameron Community (Ministries)

“With an overwhelming 52% of children in Rochester area living in poverty, the purchase of school supplies would certainly be a burden. We were excited to expand on annual SBC Cares Thanksgiving Food Drive to include the SBC Cares Backpack Give Back,” said Paul Kaiser, president of the Small Business Council of Rochester.

SBC Cares Backpack Give Back program was funded in part by sponsorships from a number of SBC members. In total, more than 85 companies participated in the Backpack Give Back, including 15 generous sponsors, helping to exceed the inaugural goal of 500 backpacks. The program will ensure more than 600 children have the tools they need to succeed in the classroom this fall.
