Parker McCay Rounds up School Supplies for Project Backpack

Parker McCay conducted a school supplies drive to support the Center for Family Services’ “Project Backpack.” Employees at Parker McCay’s Mount Laurel office spent weeks rounding up new school supplies, including backpacks, notebooks, colored pencils, highlighters, and binders, to donate to area families in need. Organized through the firm’s corporate social responsibility program, employees were invited to collect back-to-school items, and to participate in a denim day to raise additional funds. (Denim days are held once a month at the firm; employees are permitted to wear jeans to the office with a $5 donation). The combined supply drive and denim day resulted in the firm donating $500 to the nonprofit, according to a release. “We know that there’s a gap between what low-income families can realistically afford and what children actually need to start the school year,” firm COO Carolyn Rutsky said in a statement. “It’s rewarding to play a small part in preparing students for a great start to the new year. Our employees clearly enjoy having opportunities to support charities they care about.”
