Remembering Sandy

With the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaching, we can’t help but feel heavy hearted for all of those affected by the storm, and recall our time spent with the students of PS 317 in the Rockaways.

We brought a truckload of bags, our best motivational speakers, endless energy and good vibes to a community that truly needed a boost.

We talked with students who literally had nothing left. No home, no belongings, no school, nothing. These hand-delivered bags, this day in a safe place, surrounded by uplifting role-models in the STATE PackMen meant everything to them. Watch the video and witness it for yourself.

We’d never claim that a backpack alone can change a life…but we know that when it’s accompanied by positive messaging delivered by inspirational figures, it absolutely can. Bag drop events like these are made possible because of our get one, give one model and GiveBackPack Program. Buy a bag and we hand-deliver a bag to an American child in need. It’s that simple.

Thanks very much for your continued support of STATE Bags and our mission to GiveBackPack!
