Back To School with the Backpack Campaign

By January 1, 1970Uncategorized

To change the world, all you need to do is start local! 

It's just one reason we are proud to work in the City of Claremont. 

This summer, The Claremont Village Marketing Group once again had a successful Backpack Campaign for local children in need. 

With the help of participating retailers, people could pick up free backpacks that are labeled with a real child's name, age and size. They then fill them with a pair of new athletic shoes and other supplies needed for heading back to school. 

Thanks to The Group and awesome donors, XXX backpacks were raised this year! 

We believe that every child should attend school with dignity and joy, better prepared to learn, play and thrive.
