RISMEDIA, September 8, 2009—Prudential Network Realty held its 11h Annual Backpack Challenge this summer and generated a record number of backpacks and school supplies for local school children.
The real estate professionals collected and distributed 198 backpacks packed with school supplies during this year’s campaign. The backpacks and supplies were given to the Children’s Home Society, an adoption, foster care, safe haven and family/youth assistance services organization with an office in Jacksonville that helps more than 100,000 children and families throughout Florida.
“A backpack filled with all the things they need on the first day of school is a wonderful gift to a child in foster care and helps to provide a bright start to the new school year,” said Linda H. Sherrer, founder, president and CEO of Prudential Network Realty. “This is a tangible way we can help these children and meet the needs of many in our community. I am moved by the generosity of our team and know these backpacks will make a positive impact on the lives of the children in Northeast Florida.”
