NAC Delivers Over 900 Backpacks!
Despite the growing concerns and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NAC staff kicked into high gear to ensure that all NAC kids were prepared for school in September. Our incredible community partners and amazing supporters helped make that possible, coming together to purchase thousands of much needed school supplies, new backpacks, and books for NAC kids. In an unprecedented show of support and in true NAC fashion, they came through big when it was needed most!
Unable to hold our annual Back to School in-person event because of the pandemic, where typically hundreds of NAC children and families spend the day picking out their favorite backpacks and needed school supplies, as well as participate in fun educational workshops and activities, NAC staff quickly thought of an alternative way to get the needed supplies to all NAC kids. They called on our NAC drivers to hand deliver over 900 backpacks to families across the city, ensuring that no child was left behind.
