HMMA TEAM MEMBERS FILL 550 BACKPACKS WITH MORE THAN $10,000 IN SCHOOL SUPPLIES

 

Montgomery, Ala. – On Wednesday, July 31, 2019 Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) team members donated school supplies to fill more than 550 backpacks for Montgomery Public School System students. The backpacks and supplies will help these students start the new school year with many of the tools they’ll need for a year of learning.

In HMMA’s largest school supply drive donation to date, team members descended on local retail stores and purchased more than $15,000 worth of school supplies. Team members picked up backpacks purchased by HMMA and filled them with a pre-determined list of supplies. The filled backpacks were then presented to representatives from the Montgomery Public School System and Montgomery Education Foundation who will coordinate the distribution of the school supplies to local students.

This was HMMA’s 14th school supply drive and eighth Pack-A-Backpack campaign. Each backpack contains: copy paper, No. 2 pencils, pencil sharpener, crayons, glue sticks, Elmer’s glue, Ziploc bags, hand sanitizer, and baby wipes.
