Scrimmage Gives Back Supports Cradles To Crayons With Backpack Challenge
Minneapolis, MN & Philadelphia, PA - Scrimmage, a state-of-the-art mobile learning technology firm, and its philanthropic arm, Scrimmage Gives Back, launched its 1st Annual Backpack Challenge in support of the Cradles to Crayons program. Cradles to Crayons is a nonprofit organization that provides children from birth to age 12 living in homeless, or low-income situations, with the essential items from clothing to school supplies.
Through Scrimmage Gives Back, Scrimmage teamed up with its clients across the U.S. to assemble new backpacks filled with assorted school supplies, as well as art materials.
“Cradles to Crayons is at the core of Scrimmage Gives Back,” notes Derek Lundsten, Chief Executive Officer of Scrimmage. “As we strive to encourage learning in the workplace, we are proud to support this exceptional organization that provides the tools that children need to flourish in their learning and, further, to inspire them to learn. Likewise, I am grateful to our clients for their generous giving during our Backpack Challenge.”
All backpacks and supplies were donated just ahead of the new school year to the local Cradles to Crayons program in Philadelphia, home to one of four Scrimmage offices. The items have been distributed throughout Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The need for backpacks, school supplies and related items is year-round. In recognition of this demand, Scrimmage Gives Back is set to continue its support of Cradles to Crayons and launch its 2nd Annual Backpack Challenge in Spring 2018.
