Project Backpack provides a free backpack full of school supplies to every K-5 student to schools across Jackson County, Mississippi, and Mobile and Baldwin County in Alabama. The “Return to School” event will supply backpacks to Arlington Elementary in Pascagoula along with two other elementary schools in Alabama. A total of sixteen hundred backpacks will go out to local students.
Backpacks are stuffed with pencils, crayons, notebooks and other supplies ensuring that these students have everything they need to finish this unusual school year on the right foot.
“We are so excited to launch Project Backpack and donate 1,600 backpacks to 1,600 smiling faces,” said Andy Citrin. “Our kids are our future. My law firm is committed to making sure they have all the tools they need to succeed. Our goal is to keep giving until we’ve reached every young child in Jackson County.” ANDY CITRIN INJURY ATTORNEYS 906 CONVENT AVE. PASCAGOULA, MS 39567 DAPHNE, AL 36526 (228) 888-8888 PHONE
Schools were chosen based on the percentage of enrollment with the most need. This year Andy Citrin chose schools near three of their five office locations across the Alabama and Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys will host the second Project Backpack event in August 2021 and select additional elementary schools in Jackson County. The annual “Back to School” Project Backpack event will kick off the new school year every August.
Arlington Elementary students received their backpacks on Thursday, January 7th.
“We started Project Backpack to give every student a winning edge for their upcoming school year,” said Citrin. “By donating 1,600 backpacks full of supplies to three of our area’s neediest schools we have taken action to improve our communities. Our firm practices law by setting goals, being proactive and winning. We want to extend those same principles to these kids.”
