August 7, 2017 – BRC Cares has been collecting back to school supplies to donate to Backpack-a-Thon, a main event in Cradles to Crayons’ year round efforts. Berger Rental Communities team members have graciously collected over 200 items including backpacks, water bottles, lunch boxes, binders, pencils, umbrellas, and much more.

Cradles to Crayons distributes backpacks filled with new, age-appropriate school supplies and custom KidPacks filled with shoes, clothing, and more, to ensure that children arrive at school on the first day prepared and excited to learn. BRC Cares has taken this opportunity to help donate to those in need as it directly relates to Fundamental #1 We’re a family and Fundamental #20 We give back to our communities. With one week left to donate, BRC Cares hopes to collect even more items to help those families in need. For more information about Backpack-a-Thon, visit Cradles to Crayons’ website.
