PGT Innovations’ Team Members Fill Backpacks to Donate to Local At-Risk Children

August 22, 2019
To assist during the back-to-school season, team members and leaders at PGT Innovations’ North Venice location worked together to assemble SchoolTools backpacks and make a difference in the lives of local children in need through WorldVision, a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
PGT Innovations’ team members have participated in this program for the past 10 years. Team members wrote a note of encouragement and filled the backpacks with supplies, such as notebooks, binders, pens, pencils, packs of filler paper, pencil pouches, folders, pencil sharpeners, erasers, rulers, crayons, glue sticks, scissors, and markers.
The backpacks will be distributed to students at Garden Elementary in Sarasota County.
Across the county, businesses, schools, and groups of all kinds are rolling up their sleeves and joining the SchoolTools campaign, which helps at-risk children. While a simple effort, new school supplies inspire and encourage children to engage in learning, invoking creativity, and setting the foundation for a brighter future.
