Build-a-Backpack Day

August 11, 2015

The event is Build-a-Backpack Day, hosted by Supplies for Dreams, where we volunteer to help package backpacks with 25,000 individual school supplies.

Every year, we promise to donate a backpack to a Chicago student in need for every bouquet we sell at school commencements.¬†This year, we were able to donate nearly 3,000 backpacks all from the sale of flowers. That brings us to a grand total of 12,300 backpacks donated since 2012! It’s definitely a number we’re not ashamed to gloat about.
