13th Annual Backpack Challenge 2018 Results

7,151 Backpacks Donated!

We Shattered our goal and set a new all-time record!

Another Record Breaking Year!

Thank you BHHS Fox & Roach and The Trident Group sales associates, employees, executives, families, friends, clients and sponsors who came together to set a new record for this year’s backpack drive.

 

Between backpack donations and cash contributions we were able to acquire 7,151 filled backpacks for children in need throughout Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania! That’s a 34% increase from our previous record in 2017 and represents over $105,000 in contributions.

 

This video shows what your generosity means to the children in our local community.

Thank you to the many offices that topped their donations from 2017,
helping many more children in need have a successful start to the school year!
And congratulations to our top ten offices and departments for 2018!
