Announcing the 2015 Rock City Backpack Give
As we gear up for fall, Rock City has our sights set on doubling the impact of our annual Backpack Give. By partnering with Chick-fil-A for the first time, we hope to reach 10 inner-city Columbus City schools and provide more school supplies and backpacks than ever before!
Over the next few weeks, five local Chick-fil-A restaurants are going to be collecting supplies and backpacks to go toward the annual Backpack Give. They’ll be capping off the supply drive on Aug. 8 with a Stuff the Bus event at the Hilliard Rome Road and Sawmill Road locations, where donated supplies will be loaded up in an effort to fill two school buses! We couldn’t be more excited about this new partnership and are so grateful for the generosity of these stores, their owners and their employees.
As always, the volunteers of Rock City are such a huge part of making great things happen in our city and this year, we have seven opportunities for you to make an impact on local students and teachers! Click Here to jump in and be a part.
- Saturday, August 8 – Volunteer at Stuff the Bus at Hilliard Rome Road or Sawmill Road Chick-fil-A locations
- Saturday, August 22 – Volunteer at the Rock City Supply Packing Party
- Volunteer at one of our Backpack Give events at a local school.
You may drop donated supplies and backpacks off at any local Chick-fil-A store between now and August 8. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to let us know how you or your company can make an impact through Backpack Give.
