Back to School with the Community Partners of Dallas

Getting brand-new school supplies ready for Dallas area students

Volunteers at CPoD BackPack AssemblyThis fall, students under the care of Dallas County Child Protective Services will be ready for the start of a new school year with brand-new school supplies, thanks to Community Partners of Dallas and volunteering organizations.

BackpacksEmployees from Energy Future Holdings and Luminant put our Energy in Action this week to fill new backpacks with new supplies (composition books, crayons, binders, markers, index cards, etc.) for Dallas area students so that they can make the most of the school year.

School Supplies - Edited“We will be passing out approximately 3,000 backpacks on July 27,” said Sarah Rowland, volunteer manager with Community Partners of Dallas. “All of the school supplies that we will hand out are brand new so that each student can start the school year with the materials they need to learn and shine.”

LDJ at CPoD Backpack Stuffing Event - 07.19.16As our volunteers worked side by side to assemble the backpacks, they shared the reasons why this event was important to them. Ashlie Alaman, legal counsel at Luminant, said, “I am here today because I really believe in what Community Partners does. I think it’s awesome that there’s an organization that supports social workers and children who are in the child protective services system. I love that the company has partnered to help such a worthy cause.”

Stefanie Miksch, lead analyst with Luminant, said, “Volunteering at today’s event is a great way to give back to the community and help kids get ready for a new school year. Everyone should have brand-new school supplies to help start the year out right.”
