She continues, "This is going to be a huge event. Many organizations are putting a lot into this. We all realize the importance of not just giving back to our community, but helping our younger generation with the tools they need to succeed."
The event is not just taking place in Washington, D.C. The Osisis Group is part of a collective of companies and organizations across the U.S. that are attempting to hold the single, largest community giveaway in the nation at one time. Currently, companies and organizations in 17 states will host a giveaway. The goal is for each event location to be able to giveaway a minimum of 2,500 backpacks that are filled with school supplies.
"Approximately sixteen million students across the U.S. go without basic school supplies every year. We have a great need to equip our communities students with the basic essentials." explains Trinity Reese, Founder of 3N1 Fundraising. The event itself is sponsored by donations made by individuals, organizations and companies. Each location must raise $10,000 to be able to provide 2,500 backpacks with essential supplies.
