You won't be surprised to learn that the parents of the children we serve often don't have the means to buy new school supplies for their children. To meet this need, we've partnered with The Boeing Company’s DC area offices for 10 years to provide backpacks, school supplies and books to the kids in our programs and other deserving agencies.
As of today, we've exceeded our goal! Boeing employees have once again donated generously to this effort and provided nearly $16,000 for backpacks, school supplies and books.
Like our Facebook page, and then "like" the photos of Boeing, TRC and partner agency staff stuffing hundreds of backpacks. It's an August ritual we've come to love!
