    July Corporate Cup Challenge: School Supply Drive

    Education is a critical component in the development of youth across the world. Yet, locally, many families struggle to provide the basic needs to prepare for each school year.

    Annually, the Y assembles hundreds of backpacks full of donated school supplies to students in need at more than 35 schools in our region. Help us strengthen our community and reach our goal of over 1,000 backpacks this year by supporting the drive in your office.

    Email Nick Collins, SLPS Wellness Coordinator, for more information or to participate. Promotional materials and supply lists will be provided and arrangements may be made for pickup of items at your location if needed.

    Companies will earn points towards the Corporate Cup for the total number of items collected. The drive officially ends on August 5th.  

    By donating items, you are getting on the right track to make a positive change this year for our students while also helping SLPS get ahead in the Corporate Cup! Each month, SLPS Wellness will pick participants at random that complete the challenge for great wellness prizes!
