JRGM’s Back Pack Drive!

Posted on July 31, 2014 by sysop in JRGM Blog | 0 Comments

Giving back to our community is one of the cornerstones of our work at JRGM.  As citizens of the world, we believe it’s our great responsibility to positively impact the places we call home.  We see our employees, vendors and customers as an extension of our family and for that reason we invite you to partner with us in an exciting stewardship opportunity.

As the new school year approaches, we have partnered with Poquoson Elementary School in an effort to provide school supplies for many of their children whose families struggle with the financial resources required to give their children what they need for a good start.

The Back Pack / Supplies Drive will be held on Wednesday August 27th 2014 from 4:00 – 6:30pm at Poquoson Elementary School. Our goal is to provide as many supplies as possible. We believe that your sponsorship of our event would be a wonderful opportunity for you to both advertise your business and contribute to the community. By donating to this event, your company will receive advertising on our banner of partners, our Facebook page, our blog, and local news coverage.

If you prefer to leave the shopping up to us, we happily accept monetary donations as well.  Donations are needed by Friday August 22nd. We hope you will consider helping us (and our friend Pip), help the fantastic students of Poquoson Elementary School.  Also, feel free to come out and join us on August 27th!
