Today hundreds of deserving kids are getting an amazing way to return to school this year. Shutterfly and Baby2Baby hosted a backpack drive at Versa in New York City just in time for the back-to-school season.
The wonderful Baby2Baby Board Member, Rachel Zoe, and Shutterfly’s Style Partner, Mindy Weiss, were in attendance to help fill backpacks with school supplies – including products from Shutterfly’s new Kids Collection – benefiting the low-income children Baby2Baby serves in New York. Guests at the event in Times Square helped fill the cool collection of bags and school gear as well. All together 250 Shutterfly backpacks with back-to-school essentials, including pencil cases, folders, notebooks, bookmarks and more from Shutterfly were filled.
Shutterfly has supported Baby2Baby since 2014, donating over $1.5M and helping Baby2Baby distribute over 39 million items making a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of low-income children across the country.
At the event, Rachel Zoe said, “This partnership with Baby2Baby and Shutterfly means so much to us and to these kids. I get super emotional when I talk about it. As an adult, there are so many things that matter, but honestly as a kid, your backpack and what is inside of it, is everything. This is so much more meaningful than you even know.”
Deserving kids in the city will soon be smiling with glee with these fantastic gifts. For your own kid be sure to check out the collection online and details here:
