Supply Our School - Backpack Program
As a way to continue supporting this worthy cause to "Supply Our Schools", Atlee Hall, LLP is excited to announce that they will be again partnering up with Dougherty Office Supplies and participating in the 2014 Backpack Program. Established in 2009 by the United Stationers Charitable Foundation, the Backpack Program is designed to help children in need start off right with everything that they need to be successful for the upcoming school year. The backpacks purchased for each student will contain facial tissue, scissors, crayons, loose leaf paper, erasers, a glue stick, a ruler, a pencil case, washable markers, #2 pencils, and a spiral notebook.
The program is geared toward students in kindergarten through fifth grade, but more importantly, it focuses on those children who need it most. All students who receive a backpack participate in the National School Lunch Program which is a federally subsidized program that provides free or reduced cost lunches to children in need. The backpacks will be supplied only to schools where at least 75% of the student population participates in the free/reduced lunch program.
Atlee Hall, LLP and Dougherty Office Supplies know the importance of a good education and believe wholeheartedly that every child deserves a fair chance at getting one. That is why Atlee Hall, LLP and Dougherty Office Supply are thrilled to be a part of this wonderful program and make a meaningful difference in the lives of children who need it most.
