STIIIZY Joint Efforts volunteers help to distribute thousands of backpacks and school supplies.
Our STIIIZY team was invited to participate in the 16th Annual Back 2 School Food & Backpack Grab-N-Go Event. This event was hosted by the Special Needs Network INC, an organization that responds to the crisis of autism and other developmental disabilities in underserved communities. Supporting this event provided us with an opportunity to work alongside notable community organizations across the city from large worldwide corporate donors, like Amazon, to the homegrown heroes of our local professional sports organizations like LA Lakers Youth Foundation.
Our contribution to the success of the day included over 200 backpacks filled to the brim with necessary school supplies including notebooks, pencil boxes loaded with art supplies, binders, loose leaf paper, highlighters and glue sticks. The day prior to the event, Shryne Group employees took time away from their daily tasks to carefully assemble each and every one of these backpacks with supplies! On Saturday, August 21st, Another group consisting of employees from across our organization was there on site to happily distribute them as well as plenty of other supplies including packages of food to families in need. The collaborative efforts of the day resulted in over 3,000 people served!
