Pack Your Back Announces Partnership with the March for Public Education – Detroit



Pack Your Back is proud to announce a partnership with the March for Public Education - Detroit. With shared visions, these two organization believe that public schools should be safe, inclusive spaces for learning and critical thinking, where all children can discover their passions and roles as citizens.

Together, the March for Public Education - Detroit and Pack Your Back hope to further enhance the educational experience for underprivileged students by holding a collection drive in collaboration with a march that is being held on July 22, 2017 at the Clark Park in Southwest Detroit.

Throughout the coming weeks, Pack Your Back and the March for Public Education - Detroit will be announcing the locations of several school supply collection centers across the state of Michigan. These centers will be available for the public to donate new or gently used school supplies that will be redistributed to students in Flint and Detroit, Michigan.

According to Galen Miller, Executive Director of Pack Your Back, “We believe that this partnership will allow our organization to reach more students and leave a large impact on the community.”
