“Thank you Fusion for helping make our first School Supply Shindig a success!” The August 16 event at J.A. Stats in Boston generated more than 50 backpacks, 220 school supply items and raised more than $1,600 to help us provide our neediest families with new backpacks and school supplies. In total, our back-to-school initiative helped prepare more than 150 youth from 76 families for the new school year.
So glad we could participate in this worthwhile event. While our part in its overall success was small, we know it has BIG IMPACT to the recipients of the school supplies. Youth Villages is a great organization that we plan to be a part for some time to come.
