“Helping Families… Changing Lives.” This is the mission every day at A New Leaf, an organization that helps support those in need in Arizona. A New Leaf runs over 25 programs providing aid to homeless and domestic violence shelters, youth and community programs.
From June until August, A New Leaf is holding its annual Operation Fill-A-Backpack drive to put essential school supplies into the hands of needy children. We are proud to announce that this year, Rogers Corporation employees donated over 800 items to the cause. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Donated items included 76 backpacks, 120 notebooks, 42 calculators, hundreds of pencils, pens, erasers and more. Monetary donations were also provided by Rogers employees.
For many young students, packing a book bag with new pencils, crayons and notebooks is one of the most exciting parts of the school year. With Operation Fill-A-Backpack, A New Leaf gives the same experience to children in need. Equipped with much-needed supplies, students are ready to tackle new challenges and develop skills for years to come.
