Backpacks for Kids Sends 150 Kids to School in the Dominican Republic.
Backpacks for Kids is Fibernetics’ in-house charity devoted to helping families in the Dominican Republic. Each year, a number of children are denied the opportunity to attend school because their families cannot afford the necessary school supplies and uniform. Over the past six years, Fibernetics has sent approximately 600 kids to school through company BBQs and a percentage of residential sales.
This year, Backpacks for Kids supplied 150 backpacks to children. Each backpack contained supplies like notebooks, pencils, erasers, glue, rulers, etc. Each child also received a gift certificate for 1000 pesos which is used to buy school uniforms. We would like to thank Peter Cross and his wife, Rosa for helping organize the program year after year.
