This Wednesday, the 27th March, we will be hosting a bag packing day in support of the School in a Bag Organisation.
At Blake Envelopes we are committed to helping others, and have previously been involved in several events and donations for this wonderful charity as part of our ‘Giving Hope through Education’ project....
School in a Bag is a wonderful organisation dedicated to helping poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world by providing them with SchoolBags, containing all the stationery, learning resources and eating utensils that each child needs to learn, because they believe "An education for these children could be their passport to a life out of hardship and poverty."
Our target for the day is to pack a total of 600 bags, which will be distributed to the children we will be visiting during our trip to Zambia next month. Luke Simon, Founder and CEO of the charity, will be present, and all members of staff will be giving some of their time throughout the day to help pack the bags. We are hoping that Staples, too, will be paying a visit and joining in the fun, as having already very generously supplied much of the contents for the schoolbags.
Stay in touch to hear how we get on!Posted: 22/03/19 by Stephanie Smyth
